Wednesday means Color Throwdown!

swatch 172
It’s our last Color Throwdown of 2011 and our hostess with the mostess is Kerri!   Isn’t that a  bright fun array of colors!   At first I was a bit perplexed with them, then sitting on my desk right in front of me was Anna Wights Cozy Critters stamp set from Whipper Snapper Designs.  It was just perfect for this challenge!
Now you say, Danielle, isn’t there a penguin in this set?  And I say, why yes, yes there is.  Okay, I planned on using the penguin image as my adorable Jillibean paper from the Christmas Eve Chowder line has all of these penguins on it, but some wires crossed, I stamped and colored the owl, then realized he was NOT a penguin.  Still a bird.  Yes, he flies, penguins don’t.  But they both could eat fish…if an owl could  just dive into the water and…oh never mind.  He’s cute anyway!
In the picture below you can see the tinsel glitter from Recollections that I added to his scarf and then Stickles in Icicle and Stardust that I added the sentiment.  I used a Martha Stewart icicle border punch for that.
Make sure you visit all the ladies below to see their great creations.  And you must join in for the last CTD of the year!  Visit the blog for all the details!
