Color Throwdown Challenge #170

Welcome back to another week of COLOR, with the amazingly talented Color Throwdown team!  If you haven't been keeping up, we have several new superstars on our team.  They each have been taking their turn hosting during these last few weeks of challenges this year.  This week our hostess with the mostess is Lynn.  Check out her awesome palette:
I was so happy when I viewed her color choice, because I've actually designed a pack of paper with this palette.  So, I wouldn't need to recolor a different pack in order to play along :0]  Yay!  I used my Cheerful Chirps pack and made it fit a holiday card without modifying anything.  LOL  I think it lends a rustic charm to my CAS card.  I incorporated one of the birds from A Little Birdie cut file, the Frame Me cut file, and the Border Builders Scallop Dot cut file.  My card was cut using the Spellbinders Large Circle and Scalloped Circle dies. 

My layout was inspired by the fun Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO217):
I turned the sketch to accomodate my digital Beautiful Baubles sentiment.  The little bloom on the bird is from a mini punch I've had forever, and the button is from my stash.  That's about it.  One more holiday card down, and several to go! 
Be sure to check out our amazingly talented CTD team and their wonderful works of art :0]
