The World Is a Book…–CTD #189


Welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Kristin’s the host and she has quite the color palette for us.

swatch 189

OK, I’ll admit I struggled with these colors until I went through my stash and finally found some patterned paper that would work and went to town. The sentiment, stamped on a Die-namics Layered Label die cut, is from MFT’s Clearly Sentimental About Summer Vacation. The rest of the card is kinda scrappy; I used Die-namics Simply Scallops, Medium for the dark blue layer, laid down a Die-namics Eiffel Tower, and topped it with a Die-namics Leafy Flourish and a Die-namics Fringed Perennial. I did some stitching and finished it off with some clear Dew Drops.

Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set.


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