Hey everyone, welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lisa is our hostess today and she’s brought us a bright and cheerful color palette based on her fun inspiration piece.
So, I brought out Mini Royal Roses Die-namics again for this card. I really didn’t realize how much I’d missed using them! They’re flanked by Fab Foliage Die-namics and are popped up on a Single Stitch Line Rounded Rectangle Frames Die-namics along with an Eiffel Tower from In Paris Stamp Set and Die-namics.
A strip of Black & White Stripes Patterned paper adds some interest on the watercolored background and I added the adorable poodle to complete my little scene.
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 CTD478 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd478 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 Guest Designer, Debra James, who is going to stay with us through January!
