Hello–Color Throwdown Challenge #500!!


Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Wanda is our hostess and she’s chosen a gorgeous color palette based on her yummy inspiration piece.


I started by lightly stamping Typewriter Text Background on a Sweet Tooth card stock panel with Blueberry dye ink, then popped it up on the card base with foam tape. Next I added Moroccan Mosaic Die-namics cut from more Sweet Tooth card stock and set it aside while I constructed a bunch of Mini Rolled Roses Die-namics cut from Pink Lemonade card stock and cut a bunch of Fab Foliage from Gold Shine card stock.


Then I adhered the roses to the card front with hot glue, along with the gold leaves. I then sponged some Blueberry and After Midnight dye inks on Sweet Tooth card stock and cut the “hello” from Thanks & Hello Die-namics and adhered it to the card front. I finished off with some dark blue enamel dots to call it 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 CTD500 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd500 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, along with our super talented Guest Designer, Kathy Schweinfurth!
