Thinking Of You - CTD #168

Hey, there Color Throwdown fans! It's Wednesday so it's time for another color challenge! This week Keva has chosen a bold palette for us:

I thought this Teresa Collins paper, World Traveler, was perfect for this color combo so I decided to use my MFT You Move Me Stamp Set and Die-namics for my card. I'm using a simple layout that's become a go to for me. I stamped the sentiment on the die cut, sponged with Distress Ink, and added the little die cut plane and buttons for accents.

For the inside I stamped another sentiment, a plane, and some clouds.

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 CTD168 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, including November's Guest Designer.
