Color Throwdown #169

Hi friends.  I'm here to share my Color Throwdown card for the challenge  (CTD169) our very sweet and talented, Lori is hosting.  Check out her fun palette:
If you know anything about me, you know I love dimension on my cards and I love using digi paper.  This card is no's more like a perfect example of what I love to do.  Sometimes I feel like I'm cheating by simply recoloring my paper to fit a challenge, but doesn't that make perfect sense?  Why struggle to find the colors you're looking for?  RECOLOR and print.  Easy...  For my card, I recolored two sheets in my Brisk Breeze pack. 
My dimension is portrayed through my Perfect Poinsettia cut file.  I scaled my file by 50% and eliminated the bottom layer.  After I cut my pieces, I ran them through a crimper at different angles repeatedly to soften the cs.  I then formed the leaves with my finger and thumb and gave each one a slight pinch at the tip.  I adhered matching layers with a glue dot, and single layers with dimensional tape...just to give it a little more pop.  My sentiment is from Secret Santa and it's stamped on Laura Pryor's Lil' Inker Designs Flag die (THANK YOU LAURA!!!).  My scalloped border was cut with my new MS punch.

My layout was inspired by Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #38:
That's all I have to share today, but be sure to check out the rest of our amazingly talented DT:
