Enjoy Life - Color Throwdown #105


Well, can you? It's this week's Color Throwdown challenge and it's all my fault, LOL! Yep, I'm the hostess this week and until I saw them all together, these colors sounded like a good idea! They're not a *bad* idea, they're just all dark and if I'd thought about it a little more, I might have thrown a lighter color in the mix. But that's why it's a challenge, right? Right ;-)


Since the colors are so dark, I opted to add a light panel for my image. My layout is CPS179. My base card is Soft Suede and I stamped the images from PTI's Life set on Rustic Cream card stock in Almost Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant, rounded the corners and popped it up after tying a purple bow around. The sentiment was stamped in Soft Suede and made some score marks on the left side of the base. It looked a little bare, so I added some flat backed pearls. Easy peasy and I like it.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD105 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
