It's time for Color Throwdown! Today's colors were chosen by the sweet and talented Laura and are indeed lovely. They were inspired by Crate Paper's Farmhouse collection so that's what I used. No need to reinvent the wheel, right?
I really do need a belated birthday card so that's what I went with. I'm using MFT's First Class Friend Die-namics and Stamp Set for my project today. I'm also using the Postage Border Die-namics die for my, well, my border ;-) A little stitching, some seam binding and some other embellishments, and it was done! I really love how this came together.
Here's the inside with more sentiments from the set.
Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. 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 CTD165 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!
