Cheers To You–CTD #186


Hi, everyone! It’s time for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! Today, Danielle is the host and here are her gorgeous colors:

swatch 186

I decided to get some more use out of the newly released MFT set Die-namics Let’s Toast Die and Stamp Set Combo. The sentiment on the front is from the set and it was stamped on a new Die-namics Circle STAX die cut and matted with a Die-namics Dizzy Doily Duo layer. My border was done with a Die-namics Simply Scallops Medium die, and I’ve added a Die-namics Pretty Posies flower with some of the new Die-namics Royal Leaves.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the stamp set and a couple of wine glasses from the die set.


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