Chase Your Dreams–CTD #268


Hey everyone! It’s Color Throwdown time! Today Tammy has a GORGEOUS color palette for us based on an equally gorgeous inspiration piece.

swatch 268

My card is pretty simple but I think the graphic design really packs a punch :) I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then cut chevrons in the challenge colors using a Photo Corners Die-namics die. I popped them up on foam, then cut out a LLD Insert It – Speech Bubble Frame Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock. I stamped a sentiment from DC Vertical Greetings and stamped it on more Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice ink, adhered the frame to it, and popped it up on more foam. To finish it off, I added some black sequins.

For the inside, I stamped a sentiment from DC Vertical Greetings II in Black Licorice ink


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 CTD268 so we can see your beauty all in one place.
