Hello, Hello, Hello–CTD #349


Hello, and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week the so very talented Jodi is our host and she’s chosen one of my all time favorite color combos for us to play with!

swatch 349

I chose to keep this card very CAS and let those color pop! To do that I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then added a Sweet Tooth card stock panel, popped up on foam mounting tape, on which to work. With Say What? Die-namics I cut out some Kraft card stock and stamped a sentiment from LJD Sea Life and popped it up on foam mounting tape. I cut Orange Fizz card stock and Blu Raspberry card stock using dies from LLD Smart Phone Die-namics and stamped sentiments on them from LJD Grand Peaceful Wildflowers and LLD Friend Request. All sentiments were stamped with Black Licorice dye ink. I adhered the Blu Raspberry element directly to the card and the Orange Fizz element was also popped up foam. To finish off I added some matching enamel dots. Simple, but I love how it turned out!

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 CTD349 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd349 and #colorthrowdown on social media. 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 June Guest Designer, Valentyna Komisarenko!
