Thank you – Color Throwdown #76

[If you're looking for my MFT VIP Blog Hop post, please scroll down to the next post. Thanks!]

It’s Color Throwdown day again! Tammy chose the colors today: Old Olive, So Saffron, and Melon Mambo.

So, I veered a little bit from the challenge colors because I so wanted to use this new apple paper I got from KI Memories’ School Days collection called Teacher’s Pet. I used Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Bravo Burgundy—same color families, LOL. Hope Tammy won’t call out the color police on me ;-)

I stamped my little Pure Innocence – Apple For You image on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I added some grass with a new border punch I just got—couldn’t wait to play with it. I’m using Mercy’s Sketch #57 for my layout. CTD76_PI_thankyou_2010jan20
