Wishing You Happiness–CTD #213


Hi, everyone! It’s Color Throwdown time and Broni has chosen a fabulous color combo for us based on a gorgeous inspiration piece.

So, I went really simple and let my patterned paper do the work—all of the colors are there :) Since the papers were so busy, I decided to keep everything else really clean by strategically placing a frame, made with MFT’s Die-namics Peek-a-boo Trio. Before I popped the frame upon foam tape, I tied some gold cord around and tied on a clear button. It’s a pretty simple design, but the patterned paper and bling-y embellishments really dress it up.

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


Here is the
Die-namics die I used on this card.


And that’s it from me! 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 CTD213 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, including our awesome October Guest Designer, Dawn Easton!
