Color Throwdown 573-Peace on Earth

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Broni is our hostess for the final challenge of the year and she's sharing a twist on a seasonal mix of colors--lime green, hot pink, and white.

Peace on Earth card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I paired the colors with the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch and one of my favorite snowman images from Paper Smooches.  I love the tall snowman from the Swanky Snowdudes stamp set!  Here I stamped the image on shimmery white cardstock for a snow-like sparkle and added a little color with Copic markers before cutting out the colored image with the matching die.  I used foam tape to adhered the snowflake to a background made from a shimmery white panel embossed with a snowflake pattern and a snow-covered hill created with one of PS's Stitched dies.  After matting the panel on red cardstock, I adhered it to a white card base.  The "peace on earth" sentiment from the Christmas Sampler stamp set was stamped on a narrow strip of green cardstock and positioned at the top left side of the panel.  A trio of silver sequins arranged around the sentiment strip completed the design.

To play along, just create a paper crafted project using these colors as a starting point and add a direct link to your finished project using the linky tool found at the end of this week's CTD post.  As always, if you don’t have exact color matches, something close works just fine.  Just be sure that the challenge colors are the dominant ones in your project.  And, if you upload your project to an online gallery, use the keyword CTD573If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd573 and #colorthrowdown.  You can find us on Instagram and on Facebook with the username colorthrowdown.  Before you get started, here’s some inspiration from the talented Color Throwdown team and our December Guestie Amy Tsuruta.
