Happy Birthday–CTD #329


Hello, all, welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! Broni is our host this week and she has a spring-y color combo for us based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.

swatch 329

I started with a Kraft card stock base, then, on a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock, I stamped flowers and foliage from Desert Bouquet using Cherry Crisp dye ink, Wild Wisteria dye ink, Summer Splash dye ink, Jellybean Green dye ink, Limelight dye ink, and Delicata Gold pigment ink. I stamped the sentiment, from LJD Celebrate You with Steel Gray dye ink, tied around some gold cord, and popped it up on foam mounting tape. To finish off, I cut Happy Die-namics from gold glitter card stock and popped it up on foam, as well.

On the INSIDE, I stamped another sentiment from LJD Celebrate You.


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 CTD329 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, including our incredibly talented January Guest Designer, Jen Shultz and this week’s Guest Star Stamper, Ashwini!
