Color Throwdown #221

Hi everyone!  So we put up our Christmas tree on Sunday, got the inside of the house all decorated with lights and decorations, and hubby outlined the outside of the house in white lights. I just love sitting in the room with only the Christmas tree lit up. So romantic!

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for this week's Color Throwdown challenge.  Barbara has some true traditional Christmas colors for us this week. Check it out...


Here's what I came up with using stamps from Flourishes' Poinsettia and Pine:


The berry and pine image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Classic Ivory CS, colored with Copics, hand cut out with scissors, and popped up on foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped onto kraft CS and then I ran it through the Cuttlebug with my snowflakes embossing folder.  Papers are "This and That Christmas" by Echo Park.

Be sure to check out all the inspiration on the Color Throwdown Blog or by clicking through the individual blogs of all the CTD girls.  The links are here...

We always get the tree from the tree farm on 1st Dec ... But this year ... With my daughter's wedding on the 8th Dec ... We are leaving it until after the wedding. Sigh ... Will I really feel like doing that after the wedding? Love the tartan Chrissy card! Hugs xxx
