Merry & Bright

Happy Wednesday!

The Color Throwdown challenge for the week is here!

I've been wanting to use this MERRY die since I got it from MFT Stamps.  When I saw this week's color palette, I knew I'd be using it.  I experimented with the color for the backing.  I vacillated between the navy and the pink...but finally chose the pink and then everything was a snap after that.  I love the way the card turned out.  I coated the MERRY and the BRIGHT letters with clear Wink of Stella, so they really sparkle.  What a fun card to make!

Here is a look at this week's colors. What will you create?

I hope you will play along with this week's challenge.  This is the very first day of the challenge, so you have plenty of time to make something fun.  And remember, you don't have to have the exact colors.  They always tell us to just use the closest match you have.  So have fun and get to creating!

See you tomorrow!!
