Warm Winter Wishes- CT266

Happy, Happy Wednesday!! This week's Color Throwdown challenge has Lori bringing some fabulous, I interpreted wintery colors :)

LOVE those acorns!!


Here's my card...

I've gone wintery on this one!! Used a couple new WPlus9 stamps sets/die combos.... Heartfelt Holiday and Silver Bells. The background was stamped with the wreath in Heartfelt Holiday in baked brown sugar and old olive (swear I own every SU color but, the Close to Cocoa has gone missing in action!) and added berries from Silver Bells. The leaves are also from Silver Bells- the rest is Heartfelt Holiday.

For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented October guestie - Sankari Wegman at  Sankari's Sunshine Corner!

Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun!  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD266.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  

When you are finished with your creation, head over to the Color Throwdown blog to add your entry to the Inlinkz tool.   

Hope you enjoy the colors and can't wait to see what you create!!

The sketch is from Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday and played in Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge.... Anything Goes!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
