Color Throwdown 521/Winter Sympathy

Hello everyone! Amy Rysavy is our host for week's Color Throwdown challenge! This week's color challenge is just classy and fun! Perfect for Christmas, New Years, heck any theme of card really! The colors for this week are to use silver, black grey and whiteRemember we just use generic colors (so any brand/type/whatever you have will work) and you can always feel free to add in neutrals (white/black/etc) to make your creation pop!

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD521, and please use #CTD521 and #colorthrowdown on social media so we can find your gorgeous creations!  When linking up your creation using the linky tool below, please be sure to link your specific post, not a general link to your blog.  All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, and you can always check there to be sure!

One last detail to remember, no digital designs.  Only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed.  Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.
