May the Magic of the Season Never End – CTD421

2016-11-30_pp_ctd421

I took my inspiration from more than just the colors for the current Color Throwdown. I was inspired by the sparkle and shine in the picture as well. Glittery colorful snowflakes are lots more fun than the snowflakes currently falling outside. (I know, it’s December. And I’d truly rather have this than 90 degrees, but still…)
