Happy hump day! Being as it’s hump day, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lynn has given us a doozie, LOL! Actually, it’s a gorgeous color combo but I was determined to get a Christmas card out of it. It was a little tough to pull off but I think I managed to do it.
Simple layout with which to frame the fabulous new MFT Die-namics Winter Wreath, made from Hot Fudge card stock and Soft Suede. The bow is Tempting Turquoise and I brought in the Caribbean with the pearl “berries”, which are colored with Copic markers to match. The once Sweet Tooth button was also colored with a Copic marker—I have a million buttons but not ONE was Tempting Turquoise, LOL! It’s tied on with hemp cord and the sentiment, from the new Stitched Stockings, was stamped on a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon flag.
Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from Stitched Stockings and a Die-namics Gift Card Pocket – Vertical.
Here are the Die-namics dies 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 CTD218 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, Lynn Mercurio!
