Hi, everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge. Wanda has chosen a very preppy color combo based on this darling inspiration photo.
My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, 5” square. I am not a fan of square cards but I think this quilt looks best on one so I sucked it up ;-) Next I created my Quilt Square Cover-Up Die-namics element from Sweet Tooth card stock and tied around some silver cord. I then created some of my “signature” striped paper using Plaid Builder Background and Nightshift Blue dye ink, Cotton Candy dye ink, and Sour Apple dye ink, adding a strip of it to my card base. I also added a strip of silver glitter paper before popping the quilt up on foam. I stamped the sentiment, from Cozy Greetings with Nightshift Blue dye ink on a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and secured it with hot glue under my Royal Rose Die-namics that was cut from Cotton Candy card stock. I finished off with some Royal Leaves Die-namics cut from Sour Apple card stock.
Another sentiment from Cozy Greetings was stamped on the inside with Nightshift Blue dye 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. 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 CTD319 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
