Our Friendship Makes My Heart Happy - Color Throwdown Challenge #708


Hey there, it's time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Today Lynn is our hostess and she's challenging us to a gorgeous color palette based on her equally gorgeous late Summer/early Fall inspiration piece. Hope to see lots of you playing along with these amazing colors!

I still had MFT's August Card Kit, Sending Sunflowers, on my work table so I thought I'd give them another run using these colors. To begin, I stamped the sentiment from Thoughtful Greetings Stamp Set on a Smooth White card stock card front and adhered it to a Smooth White card base with foam tape. 

Next I cut lots of sunflowers and leaves using Sunflower Wreath Die-nammics and Farmhouse Foundations Die-namics (see colors used below), constructed the flowers and stems, and arranged them on my card front. I cut a clear acetate card stock jar from Farmhouse Foundations Die-namics and snuggled it up under the lower flowers and leaves so no adhesive would show though the clear card stock.

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 #CTD708 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd708 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!
