Color Throwdown 173

Welcome to a new year and another Color Throwdown Challenge! Barbara Anders is bringing us some great colors this week and she has also done a fabulous job with updating our CTD graphics!

I wanted to break in the new year with a new stamp set from PTI...yep...I have more flowers to ink up - lol! No surprise there. I heat embossed the leaves using silver EP. The layout is this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge over on Karen Giron's blog. I'm also entering this card into my good friend and SU demonstrator's Last But Not Least Challenge to use something new on a card. Head over to Deb Horst's blog HERE to get the details.

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, hop on 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 CTD173 so we can see your creation all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including January's Guest Designer, Stacy Morgan - welcome, Stacy!
