Hello and welcome to a new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lynn is our hostess this week and she’s chosen some very Spring-like colors based on her gorgeous inspiration piece.
I was tempted to go with flowers for this card but decided to do something different so I put a big ol’ wreath on Cross Die-namics instead. To begin, I cut lots of Fab Foliage Die-namics from Limelight and Gumdrop Green card stock and built the wreath on a small base that I cut out with Circle STAX Die-namics Set 2 and Kraft card stock. The cross was cut from Gold Shine card stock and I simply threaded the top of the cross through the wreath and adhered the base to the other parts of the cross for stability.
I added hot pink sequins to the wreath and a sentiment from SY Easter Bunnies. I used Ray of Light Stencil and Berrylicious dye ink for the card front, then popped it up on the base with foam. The cross was adhered with foam as well.
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 CTD538 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd538 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, Lee Ann Barrett!
