Autumn Birthday–CTD #260


Hi, everyone! I’m back with this week’s Color Throwdown challenge! This week my bestie, Tammy, has picked a gorgeous Autumn palette for us to work with.

swatch 260

I thought a birthday card in these colors would be great so I got to work. I stamped the dots from Large Scale Backgrounds, MFT’s Free With $60 set this month, on Baked Brown Sugar card stock with Versamark. Then I added a layer of Primitive Cream card stock with a sentiment stamped on a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon flag. The sentiment is from LJD Pretty Poppies stamped with Whip Cream pigment ink and heat embossed with off white embossing powder. I popped it up on foam, then added a Die-namics Leaf-Filled Flourish cut from Pistachio Pudding and some Orchid Opulence and Tangerine Tango Die-namics Upsy Daisy flowers. I added some enamel dots for the centers.

For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from LJD Birthday Greetings.


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 CTD260 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
