Howdy, Friend–CTD #196

Pin It


Since it’s Wednesday, it’s time for the Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Danielle has a sweet color combo for us.

swatch 196

For my card, I brought out my Die-namics Well Worn Greetings Die & Stamp Set. Much as I love all the new stuff, this set remains a favorite and go to set for me. And this paper, from MME’s Indie Chic “Nutmeg” Collection, was so close to the color combo that I went with it :) I’m also using MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #48 for my layout.

After I cut out all my focal image layers, I stamped the sentiment with Pool Party Ink and the border with Crumb Cake. I did some stitching and added a Die-namics Royal Rose and some Die-namics Royal Leaves for accent.

I stamped the sentiment on the inside the same way.


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

  2. This is beautiful, Bar....the papers you used are just perfect for the challenge colors this week and I love the sweet little rolled flower!!!!!

  3. Beautiful! Love the layering of the dies you used on the sentiment and your pretty patterned flower is wonderful!

  4. Love the mix of patterned paper you used. Your rolled flower is so pretty, too--I'd never think to use a patterned paper for a flower like this, but you make it look fabulous.

  5. Wow, those papers are gorgeous together! I thought I had had most of MME's pads but looks like I missed getting that one! Love the sentiment layering!

  6. I love all those beautiful papers, Barbara! The warm, friendly greeting goes so well with those papers too!
