Hello–CTD #280


Hello!!! Sorry, couldn’t resist. I crack myself up sometimes ;-) Welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! Melody has an awesome color palette for us this week based on her inspiration piece.

swatch 280
My card started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then I popped up another panel of Sweet Tooth card stock, trimmed down, and edged with a strip of Nightshift Blue card stock. I cut out “hello” from Happy Hellos Die-namics using Sno Cone card stock, Jellybean Green card stock, and Nightshift Blue card stock, popped them up on foam, and added some enamel dots in the challenge colors for accent. Easy peasy!

The inside has a sentiment from Birthday Sentiments stamped with Nightshift Blue 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 CTD280 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!
