Sunflower Friend–CTD #262


Hey, there Color Throwdown fans! It’s time for another challenge and Wanda has knocked this one out of the park! Love these colors based on her awesome inspiration piece!!

swatch 262

’Course, I love anything FALL, so I *would* love it :) I started with a Smoky Slate card base, then stamped my patterned paper on Primitive White card stock using LLD Mod Borders and the challenge colors. I stamped the sentiment, from Inspired by Flowers Set #3, with Steel Gray ink, then tied around some silver cord. I thought the silver would tie in with the gray base and I like how it does.

I created a Die-namics Sunflower and Die-namics Royal leaves, popped it up on foam, and finished off with some enamel dots. I do so love those things!!

The inside has 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 CTD262 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 fabulous October Guest Designer, Sankari Wegman!
