Live All the Days Of Your Life - CTD #147 & MFTWSC # 25

Back again with another awesome color combo and sketch. Today's Color Throwdown (the ORIGINAL color throwdown challenge) Challenge colors were chosen by Kristen and they are MY kinda colors ;-)

Aren't they yummy? Here’s this week’s sketch. You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.

And here's my card. I didn't even flip it this week--I did move the embellishment over to the opposite side, though ;-) I thought these Webster's Pages papers were perfect for this color combo. I'm using a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Birthdays for my focal image, stamped on the scalloped circle from First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics die set, which is layered on the larger Dainty Doily Duo Die-namics die cut. Other Die-namics dies I used are Mini Film Strip Border, Mini Rolled Roses, Leafy Flourish, and Upsy Daisy.

Here's the inside of my card.

It seems I can't make a card any more with out using a Die-namics die or two, or three - or six ;-)

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 CTD147 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!
