Make a Wish–CTD #425


Hey there and welcome to this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Jodi is challenging us to a trendy color combo based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.


Even though these colors are a winning combination for a ladies’ scarf, I thought they were perfect for a masculine card too. Chances for that are not easy to come by so I went with it. Using Tropical Teal dye ink, Safety Orange dye ink, and Black Licorice dye ink, I stamped up Birthday Speech Bubbles stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating Birthday Speech Bubbles Die-namics. To a Sweet Tooth card base, I added another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock stamped with Happy Birthday Background, stamped off once, and adhered it at a wonky angle.


Then I spread molding paste through Concentric Circle Grid Stencil on more Sweet Tooth card stock and popped it up on foam mounting tape. Then I popped up the speech bubbles and finished off with some enamel dots.

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 CTD425 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd425 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 January Guest Designer, Leigh Penner! Since December was a short month, we’re keeping Leigh on for another month—I’m sure you’re as delighted about that as we are!
