Color Throwdown #55

Here we are with another Color Throwdown Challenge and this is another sponsor week. Tammy has chosen our colors and she's breaking out some of the new In Colors. This week's colors are: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Kraft, Black, and White. Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamps. You can find out all about them on the Throwdown blog.

Look at this sweet little puppy and kitty! Aren't they the cutest!? This was a difficult color combination for me--I'm not at all sure I like this card, but the image is just too cute! The sentiment is from the same set, and there are several other images and sentiments in this set.

My DP is from the new Razzleberry Lemonade DSP and my card stock is in all of the challenge colors. I added some paper piercing and black brads as accents and did a little corner punching. I stamped the doggie bone and the little mouse on Kraft, cut them out, and glued them on.

Now, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use Mr. Linky to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD55 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! And don't forget--this week there's a chance to win a $20 gift certificate with free shipping from Simon Says Stamps, and we'll be picking a featured stamper too!!!
