Thanks–Color Throwdown Challenge #462


Hi everyone, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! I’m hosting this week and since I’ll all about Fall I went with a traditional Fall combo based on my inspiration piece. I hope to see lots of you playing along this week!


My card is pretty simple, with a watercolor wash background for starters. I popped that up on foam tape and added Mod Square STAX, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock and also popped up on foam, then I added Fab Foliage Die-namics cut from the following card stocks, top to bottom: Tangy Orange, Cactus, and Chili Powder.


The sentiment is from Many Thanks Die-namics, was cut from Brushed Gold card stock, and adhered to finish off.

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 CTD462 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd462 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 Guest Designer for September, the incredibly talented Tammy Hershberger!

  1. Hi Barbara. I love your style of cards. I particularly love the very simple JOY card you've just created for MFT and the word is such a vibrant colour, I was wondering if you coloured it or if you used cardstock. Thanks for your inspiration. Love your work. Kindest regards,


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
