Hey, there! I’m back with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge! I’m the host this week and I chose some bright, summery colors :)
Before I get into my card, though, I have a little announcement to make. We have a new team member on the Color Throwdown—one that’s been a huge inspiration to me and I’m sure to many others, none other than The Paper Landscaper, Denise Marzec! Woot!! We are so happy to have Denise joining us!
So, on to my card. I brought out an older MFT set, WTG Enjoy the Ride, and some older patterned paper that was PERFECT for these colors. I stamped WTG on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 130lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and did a little coloring with Copic markers and some paper piecing. Then I matted it with Orange Fizz card stock and Jellybean Green card stock, then popped it up on foam dots. I tied some twine around and tied on an Orange Fizz button. The sentiment was stamped on a Die-namics Sentiment Strip die cut and tucked under the button.
Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:
Here is the Die-namics die I used on this card:
And that’s it! 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 CTD203 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, including our August Guest Designer, Vickie Zimmer!
