Hey everyone! It’s Color Throwdown time! This week I’m the host and I’ve got a nice summery palette for you to work with.
Before I get to my card, I have a special announcement to make. The Color Throwdown Challenge has just added two new members to the design team. I think you’re all going to agree with us that Vickie Zimmer and Melody Rupple will be AWESOME additions to the team—I can’t wait to see all the fabulous inspiration they will bring to the table. Vickie was a Guest Designer last year and Melody is on the MFT team with me and will be doing some scrapbooking for her designs. Some new blood to shake us up some :)
OK, then, on to my card :) I told you you would be seeing MFT’s new Plaid Builder Background a lot from me and here it is again. I had to put it away so I wouldn’t pick it up for every card—it’s that much fun to stamp with!
So, I created my plaid with the challenge colors on Sweet Tooth card stock and adhered it to a Kraft card stock base. Then I cut a Die-namics LLD Insert It – 3 x 4 Notepad from Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped it with LLD Journal It – For the Record and then a little sentiment from DC Contempo Cage. I popped it up on foam, added a Die-namics Leaf-Filled Flourish cut from Sour Apple card stock and a Die-namics Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose cut from Lemon Drop card stock. To finish it off I added a few sequins and it was done!
For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Friendship.
And that’s it from me! 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 CTD254 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 fabulous Guest Designer for August, Kendra Wietstock!
