Happy Anniversary–CTD #258


Hey, there, everyone! It’s time again for the Color Throwdown! the fabulous Lynn has an awesome color combo for us to work with this week.

swatch 258

This color palette said “wedding” or “anniversary” to me so that’s what I went with. I used a Sweet Tooth card stock base card and added a Hot Fudge card stock layer. I made a frame with my Die-namics Rectangle STAX and popped it up on foam after laying down a Die-namics Modern Morocco layer. I added greenery with Die-namics Leaf-Filled Flourish, Die-namics Leafy Flourish, and Die-namics Royal LeavesDie-namics Royal Rose and Die-namics Mini Royal Roses framed the sentiment strip, which was cut with Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon and stamped with a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental About Anniversaries in Hot Fudge ink. Some green sequins finish it off.

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.
