Time to Celebrate–CTD #312


Hey, everyone, it’s time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Miss Broni has an awesome color palette for us, based on a gorgeous inspiration piece—I LOVED creating with this color palette!!

swatch 312

This card started with a Kraft Card Stock base, I added a panel of Grout Gray Card Stock stamped with Grout Gray Ink and Wood Plank Background, then a strip of glitter paper. Next up is a panel of Orange Fizz Card Stock stamped with Steel Gray Ink and Happy Birthday Background, popped up on foam. I added a clock, made with MPD Time Pieces Die-namics and MPD Timeless stamp set using Black Licorice Card Stock, Sweet Tooth Card Stock, and Steel Gray Ink, also popped up on foam. The sentiment was both stamped and die cut from MPD Timeless and Celebratory Greetings Die-namics, on a strip of Grout Gray Card Stock. I added a gear, cut from MPD Time Pieces Die-namics and Black Licorice Card Stock, some hemp cord, and enamel dots to finish it off.


A sentiment from LJD Celebrate You is 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 CTD312 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
