This post is also for The Color Throwdown Challenge and CAS-tastic Challenge. A triple hitter, LOL! However, I feel it's only fair to warn you that these cards are BRIGHT! You may wanna get out your shades before viewing, heh, heh.
Here are the colors that that wild-child LeAnne chose for the Color Throwdown Challenge:
I actually LOVE this color combo--my brand new BRIGHT Delovely paper is perfect for it. OK, the green is not *exactly* Green Galore but it's close, very close.
I really, really tried to make this card work for all three things--completely intending to make it CAS but it just wouldn't STAY CAS, KWIM? I stamped the sentiment on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut/layered it with Classic Oval Nestabilities. I also use my Jumbo Scallop Die-namics die (temporarily out of stock) on the pink border. I was thinking since this is a vacation sentiment and the paper looks very tropical to me, I should add some tropical flowers. Trouble is, I don't have any tropical flowers, so I punched out some and added some buttons from the Spring button collection. I also used MFT's Sour Apple card stock.
Here's the inside with another sentiment from the set.
Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. 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 CTD95 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! And just a little announcement we have: Laura Pryor will be joining the team full time, starting today! Be sure to give her some love! Our June Guest Designer is Wanda Cullen--be sure to give her some love, too!

So, since the first card went rocketing out of CAS range, I did another one--same papers, same stamp set. The CAS-tastic Challenge this week is to have a sentiment as the focal image, hence this card with another sentiment from the set. I used the Scalloped Scallop die for the central border and both scallop dies for the inside.
And yet another sentiment for the inside.
I hope you'll play along with the CAS-tastic Challenge this week, and don't forget to check out my team mates' creations :)
