Color Throwdown #321- Sending Holiday Cheer!!

Good Morning!! Hope all of my US friends had a great Thanksgiving WE!! I had four days off but, geesh it went fast! Today the Color Throwdown challenge is going neutral and shiny!! Broni picked the colors this week and I am smitten :)

Here's my card....

Went CAS on this one and a little graphic {at least for me}. Stamped the WPlus9 Just Geometric Triangles and then die cut the deer from WPlus9's Stag Trio die with gold paper. The sentiment is WPlus9 Silver Bells.

Totally flunked the picture taking... you can see how the gold stag {using Ott lights} has dark shadows. Below you can see he is shiny, but a little overexposed!!

Please help us welcome Sue Lelli of Card Therapy.  She's a fabulous mixed media artist and card maker extraordinaire. Welcome Ms. Sue- thrilled to have you playing with us!!
