Color Throwdown in Christmas Colors?





I'll admit that when I think of red and green, I think of Christmas.  Those colors are just lodged in my brain that way.  However, there can be green trees and red apples and many other natural red and green object pairs.  My first attempt was way too garish, so I reduced the amount of the red and green and added more white for my Color Throwdown card.  A wonky rectangle and a dry-embossed oval back up the leaves cut from a watercolor wash. A tiny sentiment from SU! and Wink of Stella on the leaves complete the card.

When the phrase "opposites attract" was coined, it must have been in reference to red and green. My favorite opposites on the color wheel. In summer I think apples, strawberries, or ladybugs on a leaf. In winter it's Christmas, for sure. Your leafy branch cut from the watercolor background looks fantastic, Evelyn. The color variation adds so much interest. I'm a nut for the wonky stitches, and your layout works beautifully!
