Color Throwdown #116

swatch 116

Woohoo!  I am the hostess today at the Color Throwdown and I’ve chosen some lovely subtle holiday colors to get you in the mood for some Christmas stamping.  If you don’t do Christmas, I am sure you can come up with some other themes for which to use these colors!!! 

My sweet friend Linda lent me her Delightful Decorations set and punch, so I thought I would use them for my card:

CTD116-1

The card base is Certainly Celery;  I used the Jolly Jingles jumbo wheel from the Holiday Mini catalog, and some Pear Pizzazz ink, for my subtle background, embellishing it with pearls here and there.  The “ribbon” is actually Cherry Cobbler seam binding, also from the mini:

CTD116-3

  5. Your bow is PERFECT. I love it.
    The pearls on the background is such a neat touch. Very cleaver of you to highlight something that is normally just ... background.

Oh girl...I LOVE how you managed to keep this clean and simple, fresh and pretty :] The little detials you added, like the pearls to areas of your background stamp and ornament are just gorgeous and just enough...not overdone. Your layout with the pretty scalloped panel and vibrant ribbon are just perfect! GREAT color choice, my friend ♥
