Color Throwdown: Joy

I am absolutely thrilled to be the December guest at the Color Throwdown!!

I knew immediately what I was going to be doing.  I've had this gorgeous wreath die waiting to be used.  I see these colors as non-traditional Christmas, although it's a fabulous festive look!  I thought if I put some brick behind the wreath, it would also have a modern, non-traditional look. The navy blue stands out perfectly for the sentiment and the bow.  (The funny look in the picture on the sentiment is glitter.)


I originally had the wreath completely open to the brick but it seemed too busy with all of the brick peeking through so I used some white metallic paper and filled in the leaves of the wreath.  (And now I have a full metallic white wreath die cut so you'll definitely see the wreath again!)


The patterned blue is very, very old from Lasting Impressions.  The blue "joy" uses Versamark with Heat 'n Stick Powder, then dusted with Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter.

ETA: With apologies, I linked to Doodlebug Matte Sprinkles, but it should be Glitter Sprinkles - I will update as soon as I'm home from work!
