Thank You–CTD #281


Hi, everyone! It’s Color Throwdown time and this week Monica has a bold and striking color combo for us to work with.

swatch 281

Since the colors were intense, I decided to go CAS with a lot of white space to balance it out. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then stamped LJD Forget Me Not in the challenge colors. The sentiment was made by cutting Thank You Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock and popped it up on foam. A few orange sequins finished it off.

The inside has a sentiment from Sending Thanks, stamped with 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 CTD281 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!
