Thinking of You–CTD #290


Happy Wednesday! It’s time for another Color Throwdown challenge! Today Tammy has a fabulous color combo for us based on her awesome inspiration photo.

I decided to go all graphic with my card today. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then cut Triangle Screen Die-namics from another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock. I used the cut outs and stamped some images from Washi Patterns and More Washi Patterns with Banana Split ink, Berrylicious ink, and SU! Cameo Coral. I also cut some Banana Split card stock, Berrylicious card stock, and Cameo Coral card stock with the die to get some solid triangles.

Next I adhered the Triangle Screen Die-namics to my card base and started popping in my little triangles randomly until I was happy, then I adhered them. I stamped the sentiment, from MPD Winged Beauties, on a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice Hybrid ink and popped it up on foam. To finish it off, I added some coordinating enamel dots.

Another sentiment from the set was stamped on the inside.


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 CTD290 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!

And speaking of the design team, it is with much sadness that we say good bye to Melody. This will be her last post and we will miss her gorgeous layouts as, I’m sure, will you. Be sure to stop by her blog and leave her some love.
