Hey, Girlie!–CTD #201

Hello there,
Color Throwdown fans! Thanks to everyone who played along last week for our 200th celebration, and congrats to all the winners!! The winners were posted on the Feature Stamper post yesterday, but I want to specially congratulate the winner of my blog candy, Christine Dring! Congrats Christine! If you haven’t done so already, please contact me (my email is on the left column) and I’ll arrange to get your goodies to you!

This week, the lovely
Wanda is our host and she has picked some rich colors for us to work with.

I went really simple. As soon as I saw these colors I thought of some patterned paper I’ve had in my stash for a couple of years. I pulled it out and it was perfect! Using my
Die-namics Hexagon die, I cut out some pieces of paper and arranged them vertically on my card in a repeat pattern. I’m using my Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings Die & Stamp Set Duo
for the sentiment. I cut it out from Whip Cream card stock, stamped the border with Riding Hood Red ink and the sentiment itself with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. Then I popped it up on foam and finished the card off with some matching gems.

Here’s the inside with a sentiment from
More Essential Sentiments.

Here are the Die-namics dies I used on this card:
And that’s it! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD201 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!
