Color Throwdown #322- Tis' The Season!!

To be frazzled, LOL!! That's my life this year, even though I love the holidays- this one has been busy!! My parents have a 60th Wedding Anniversary- hard to believe, right!?! Oh yes, the weekend before Christmas and yes, we (brother and sisters are having a party)- they never wanted to do anything for 25 or 50 but, 60- can't pass that one up!!!

Enough of that, what you are here for is this week's Color Throwdown colors brought to us by Tammy!

Loving the bright colors!!! My card...

 Used some new Reverse Confetti- Branch Out Confetti Cuts (trees) and the sentiment is from Seasonal Sentiments. I sponged the background with distress inks- Tea Dye, Antique Linen, and Vintage Photo. Then I added some snow with Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil (love it!) Added some snowy hills using Mama Elephant border dies. Layered it all up and added some wooden stars from Pretty Pink Posh.

My sweet friend Sue Lelli of Card Therapy is our Guest this month. She's a fabulous mixed media artist and card maker extraordinaire. Thrilled to have you playing with us!!
