Best Wishes–CTD #270


Hi, all, it’s time for the Color Throwdown! This week’s colors were chosen by Wanda and I just LOVE the elegant inspiration piece she used, don’t you?

swatch 270

I was in need of a wedding card and I thought these colors were perfect for it so I got to work. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then added a Dizzy Doily Duo Die-namics doily cut from Kraft card stock. Then I made a Hybrid Camellia Flower Die-namics posy, accompanied by some Layered Leaves Die-namics and popped it up on the doily.

I cut a Banner Greetings Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and stamped a sentiment from Banner Greetings with Black Licorice ink and popped it up as well. Since I had no silver on the card at this point, I added some silver beads and some pearls for good measure :)

For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Happy Thoughts—perfect for a wedding card, I think.


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 CTD270 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
