Color Throwdown #119 - Greatest Gift

Hello everyone!  It's Wednesday and time for this weeks Color Throwdown!  Barbara has picked out a sharp looking color combo for this week of Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz and Cajun Craze and we hope you'll play along!  For my first card I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for the layout and the retired SU stamp set Branch Out and since I don't have Pear Pizzazz I went with Kiwi Kiss.

Supplies: Branch Out, Retired DSP, Square Lattice Impressions Folder, Ribbon, Brads, Oval Nestie, Piercer, Dimensionals.
For my second card I used the stamp sets Aviary and Curly Cute (I love these sets together).

Supplies: Aviary, Curly Cute, Ribbon, Perfect Polka Dot Impressions Folder, Scallop border punch, Brads, Piercer, Dimensionals.
For all the details on how to play along, visit The Color Throwdown site.

Two cards?! Oh my girl! I need to step up my game to try and keep up with you :] Both cards are fantastic! Love that the first one can go masculine or feminine, and the second card with the cute little owl in the birdcage is adorable! Beautiful work, my friend ♥

Love this color combo. Both cards make great use of it but I like the first one best. The serenity of the scene goes nicely with your sentiment.

I think both your cards rock, Lynn! You always know how to put color combinations together so perfectly! Now, if I could just figure out what pack that dsp is from? It's driving me crazy cause I know I have it! ; )

Hope you had fun last night with Kathy!

Wow Lynn, 2 cards! These are both fantastic! Really love the layout on the first that tree and the red boots! The owl in the bird cage is so stinkin' cute! Love these!

Tammy Hershberger said...

You're making us look bad cranking out two cards every week! LOL They're both fabulous! I love that lattice embossing and that tree image is so classic and sweet! LOVE the layout on the second card, too! Must file that idea away in the cobwebs of my brain!
