Ready for another Color Throwdown!? How about a CAS-tastic Challenge, too? I've got 'em today for you. Broni is our CTD host today and here are the colors she chose:
And, the CAS-tastic challenge for today is to make a Father's day card.
I'm using Mojo Monday Sketch 143 for my layout and I'm fudging a little on the colors. I hope Broni won't send the color police after me ;-) I love this Basic Grey Boxer paper for masculine cards and these colors are very close. I made my "blue ribbon" with My Favorite Things' new Sunshine Die-namics die and punched out the center with a 1 1/4" punch after stamping the sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Fathers. The letters spelling dad are from a Tim Holtz Grungeboard set of alphabets I have and I colored them with Shabby Shutters Distress ink. The twill is new at MFT, as well. I really wanted to add some brads and stuff, but I was trying to keep it, if not really CAS, then not too busy ;-)
Here's the inside:
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 CTD97 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
