Happy Birthday–CTD #300


Hi, everyone, and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Miss Vickie
has a gorgeous color combo for us that was a delight to work play with.

swatch 300

My card started with a Berrylicious card stock base, then I had fun creating a splatter panel on some Sweet Tooth card stock. I mixed up some MIX-ables Sheer Shimmer Mist with water and Nightshift Blue refill, Orange Fizz refill, and Berrylicious refill and splattered away. I’m slowly building up my collection of mini misters already mixed with colors—it’s so nice to just be able to reach for one when I want a little color splash.

Then I stamped up a piece of
Nightshift Blue card stock with the new Diagonal Stripes Background and Sweet Tooth pigment ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. I added a strip of that and a gift made with LJD Celebrate You and LJD Celebrate You Die-namics, stamped with Nightshift Blue ink and Orange Fizz ink and popped up on a silk thread tangle. The sentiment is from the same set and is popped up on foam, as is the main panel. I wanted something at the bottom so I added a flag cut from Nightshift Blue card stock and cut with LLD Accent It – Flags & Tags Die-namics and a folded piece of Orange Fizz grosgrain ribbon.

Another sentiment from
LJD Celebrate You and some candles from LLD Bring on the Cake Die-namics are 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.
