Hello–CTD #279


Hey, everyone, it’s Color Throwdown time! Today Lori has a fabulous color combo for us—I love all those hot colors with gray!

swatch 279

I coulda gone all Valentine with this color combo but I’m do done with Valentines so I went another way. I’m using several just released MFT sets on this card—Striped Background on the Razzle Berry card stock layer, Cheetah Background on the phone desktop layer, LLD Friend Request for all the sentiments, and LJD Forget Me Not for the flowers. I’m also using Typewriter Text Background for the text layer. The flowers were stamped with Steel Gray ink, Pink Lemonade ink, Red Hot ink, and Razzle Berry ink. I used Pink Lemonade ink on the Cheetah Background stamped on Pink Lemonade card stock. The little heart strip was cut from Red Hot card stock and the sentiments were stamped with Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. After everything was assembled I finished off with a few enamel dots.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from LLD Friend Request.


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 CTD279 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
