CTD267 - Peace!!

It's another Color Throwdown challenge- this week brought to us by Melody. I'm still playing with my new WPlus9 stamps... even went CAS on this one!! Well... at least for me anywho!!

The colors....


Wonderful!! Love the inspiration pic but, I don't have a snowglobe... although I've seen some I adore!!


Still playing with my WPlus9 stamps from the latest release (it seems a few of my teamies are enjoying this set too!) The wreath is from Woodland Wreaths. When die cutting the wreath - there is a center piece that normally I would throw away but, thought it would work well to add the Peace sentiment and then pop the wreath on top for a little dimension. Stamped the fern image in Always Artichoke and Old Olive and added some turquoise berries. Finished it off with a turquoise bow and enamel dot.

For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented November guestie - Cindy Lawrence at  One Happy Stamper!! Thanks Cindy for joining us this month!!

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 CTD267.  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.   

I played in CAS-ual Fridays embossing challenge... well, this is my first time but, I'm thinking it's CAS enough :-)

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