Thanks–CTD #285


Hi, everyone! It’s Color Throwdown time again! This week the fabulous Broni has chosen the sweet, soft palette for us to work with—such a beautiful scene!

swatch 285

I went kinda CAS for my card. I started with a Grout Gray card stock base and stamped it all over with LJD Darling Dots and Grout Gray ink. Then I added an angled Sweet Tooth card stock panel, stamped with a sentiment from MPD Contemporary Roses in Steel Gray ink and popped up on foam. To that I added a Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics cut from Sour Apple card stock and a Layered Rose Die-namics cut from Insulation Pink card stock. A shimmery enamel dot in the center of the rose finished it off.

On the inside is a sentiment from Sending Thanks.


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 CTD285 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!
