Thank You - CTD #185


Welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week the insanely talented Broni is our host--she’s chosen a fabulous color combo for us to work with.

I’m pretty lost if I don’t have patterned paper to use, LOL, so I went super simple for my card. First of all, I stamped a row of Thank Yous down the left side of my card, using a stamp from Big Greetings, MFT’s Triple Scoop set for this month, which will be available on it’s own on April 3rd, at 10pm. Then I cut out the fabulous Die-namics Large Leafy Flourish and adhered that on the right side. To finish it off, I added a Die-namics Pretty Posies flower with a twine-tied button (both gray) for the center.

On the inside, I simply stamped another sentiment from the set.


Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
