Color Throwdown Challenge #21-Double!

CTD21 banner

Today is Broni's turn for the Color Throwdown Challenge, and she has picked some more lovely fall colors for us to use:

CTD21 swatch

My first card was not q-u-i-t-e what I was hoping for, so I made two!  Here is the second one, with which I am much happier:


I used a sketch from Sunflower Studio, turned on its side--of course!  And I used some more of my Martha Stewart glitters.  I just wish I had stamped my little reindeer a little more in a straight line!    And I wish the picture did it justice, it is so pretty IRL!  The snowflake was spray-glued and also glittered with some MS glitter!  So here is my first card:


This is my first attempt with Whippersnapper stamps--they are very cute, just take a little different pressure while stamping than what I am used to.  I think this is a little busy, but it will be a good friendship/birthday card!  Hey, remember to post a link to your own CTD creation at our blog, Color Throwdown Challenge, or if you post to an online gallery, use the keyword CTD21.  Let's see what the other designers came up with:
