Color Throwdown #123

Hello everyone! Welcome back to The Color Throwdown! We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year and are ready to join us for more fantastic color combos in 2011!

The colors I chose for todays challenge were actually inspired by this sweater vest I bought recently at my most favorite store. I just love the bright colors of the buttons that adorn the front and thought it would make for some pretty awesome card designs! To make the challenge even more fun today, and to say "welcome back!" we have a special treat for you! Our own Kristin Bueter has designed a digital paper pack that contains papers in these colors, and you are welcome to download the papers for free and use them on your card, if you wish! Click on the graphic below or follow this link for the download! And thanks, Kristin!!!
A new month means we welcome a new Guest Designer to our team, and today I could not be more thrilled to introduce Lori Tecler as our January Guestie! Lori has a fabulous clean-and-simple style and I know you're going to LOVE seeing the designs she will come up with for this month!

So c'mon, let's get to stamping! Remember to leave a direct link to your creation using the McLinky tool below, and use the keywords CTD123 when you upload to Splitcoaststampers!

Happy stamping!
