Tomorrow Is Another Day–CTD #207


Back again with this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge. This week’s colors were chosen by Lori based on this yummy-looking inspiration piece.

swatch 207

I went super CAS today. Using my Die-namics Hexagon die, I cut several patterns of paper from October Afternoon’s Cakewalk, and arranged them in a quilt block pattern in the upper left corner and added three more to the opposite corner. The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental About Katherine Hepburn and was stamped on a Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX, popped up on foam dots and embellished with a Limeade button tied with twine.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set:


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 CTD207 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!
