Congratulations–CTD #243


Hi, everyone, it’s Color Throwdown day and the fabulous Denise has a great color combo for us based on her FUN inspiration piece!

swatch 243

On a Sweet Tooth card stock base and layer, I stamped a sentiment from Big Greetings with Black Licorice ink. Then I popped up a Die-namics Peek-a-Boo Trio panel, also from Sweet Tooth card stock. Then I cut out three Die-namics Butterflies from patterned paper and popped them up, as well. They have button bodies—the yellow is a Lemon Drop button and the Green is a Gumdrop Green button.

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


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 CTD243 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.
