You Mean the World to Me–CTD #303


Hey, there! It’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and this week Miss Broni has a great color combo for us based on a yummy looking inspiration piece :)

swatch 303

My card started with a Kraft card stock base. Next I added a layer of Berrylicious card stock stamped with DC Large Scale Backgrounds and Sweet Tooth pigment ink. Next up is a layer of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Star Background and Red Hot ink, popped up on foam, with a strip of silver glitter paper added for an accent. I created my focal panel by cutting Centerpieces You Mean the World to Me Die-namics from Berrylicious card stock, then adhered Sour Apple card stock on which I’d stamped Linen Background with Gumball Green ink. I substituted Red Hot card stock for  the YOU, then tied some hemp cord around. I popped it up on foam and added a Sun, Moon, & Stars Die-namics star cut from silver glitter paper and a hemp cord tied Red Hot button.

For the inside, I die cut Centerpieces You Mean the World to Me Die-namics from scrap paper and used it as a stencil to sponge on some Sour Apple ink, then over stamped the sentiment, from PI Will You Be Mine? with Steel Gray ink.


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.
