With Sympathy–Color Throwdown Challenge #440


Hey, everyone, and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today’s colors were chosen by Wanda based on her yummy inspiration piece!


Today’s card is one that we always hope we never have to send but when we need it we need it NOW. This one was pretty quick and easy so perfect for that kind of occasion. I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and added a strip of Dots & Stripes Paper Pack down the right side. Then on more Sweet Tooth card stock I stamped Distressed Patterns with Black Licorice dye ink for some background and popped it up on the card base after trimming the side.


Then I cut Roses in Bloom Die-namics from Pure Plum card stock, Lemon Chiffon card stock, and Sour Apple card stock and arranged them on the card front, adhered with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from Label Maker Love with Black Licorice dye ink and popped that up on foam, then cut Well Wishes Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock and popped it up, as well, and was done.

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 CTD440 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd440 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 April Guest Designer, Jeanne Jachna!
