CTD122 - Sleigh Bells Ring

 Hello friends!  It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown!  Can you believe I've been a guest designer for The Color Throwdown for the last six weeks, it sure flew by fast and I had so much fun!  I want to thank Tammy and all of the talented designers on The Color Throwdown team for letting me play along with them.
Laura is our hostess today and she chose these lovely Christmas colors for all of us to use this week.  The card I have for the color challenge uses the stamp sets Sleigh Bells Ring, Bella Toile, Tiny Tags and Holidays and Wishes.  The photo of my card above is unedited since my computer crashed which means no photo-shop or picture editing on my husbands laptop, so it is what it is.  I added some Dazzling Diamonds on the main image to give it some sparkle after using an aqua brush to paint on some color.
For all the details on how to play along, visit The Color Throwdown site.
And be sure to check out what the other design team members have created using the colors for this week:

Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits
Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor
Danielle Kennedy - Wild Dragonfly Designs
Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy
Kristin Beuter - Mindless Creativity
Laura Pryor - Lil' Inker Designs
Cathy Indelicato - Crafty Thoughts

I like how you colored this vintage style image. The subtle stamping on the red panel is a nice accent.
