Color Throwdown #324 --- Warm Wishes!!

Happy, Happy Wednesday!! We're back starting the New Year at the Color Throwdown Challenge. Monika is starting us off with a fabulous color palette!

Looks cold (to me) but, love those colors!! Ha... they say our low temp tonight will be 11 or 12 degrees (dang, that's cold for a southern girl!!)

As soon as I saw these colors, I knew I wanted to use Avery Elle's Let It Snow. Added some snow with modeling paste and Simon Says Stamps Falling Snow stencil. The hills were created with a Mama Elephant Borders die.

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started. We’re also joined by January’s guest designer: Bonnie Sharp and this week’s Guest Star Stamper: Jenny Engelke

Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits
Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor
Joan Ervin - Stamping With Passion
Lori Tecler - Inking Aloud
 Wanda Cullen - Cullen-ary Creations
Monika Davis- MAD Stamper
Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy
 Jodi Collins- Stampin a Latte

Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...this is all about having fun!  AND... remember "neutrals" are free! If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD324  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.

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