Because I Care–CTD #202


Hello there,
Color Throwdown fans! I’m back again with a gorgeous color combo from Tammy. I confess I would never have put these colors together but they totally WORK!


swatch 202


I’m using an MFT set called Sassy & Sweet for the front sentiment. I stamped it on a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon flag, popped it up on top of a Die-namics Dizzy Doily die cut, and topped it off with a sweet little Die-namics Upsy Daisy flower with Die-namics Royal Leaves. Some stitching, some Caribbean Teal baker’s twine, and a clear jewel trio finish it off. MFT card stock used is Blue Raspberry, Whip Cream, and Sour Apple. The button in the center of the flower is one of MFT’s new Blue Raspberry buttons.

Here’s the inside with a sentiment from
MFT’s Finishing Flourishes.



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