Color Throwdown 197


It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge

Aren't these some fabulous colors?!!  Thanks to Joan for being this week's hostess with the mostest!
So, here's what I came up with...
A little BG embossing...bold and beautiful chevron stripes...my fave jute twine...sweet little rolled roses, a kiwi corduroy brad (going to be sad to see my supply come to an end very soon) and this great banner sentiment layered over a houndstooth die!  I just love my corner chomper and couldn't resist chomping away...again - lol!  Did you notice this is challenge #197???  Our 200th challenge is around the corner and there will be lots of goodies given away by the design team, so be sure and keep your eyeballs peeled for the details coming soon!

If you don't have the exact colors listed...no worries.  Pick something close to it and have fun!  If you post to an online gallery, be sure and use the key word: CTD197.  You don't want to miss the great cards by the rest of the design team and by our talented guest designer, Anna Wight.  You can check them out HERE.
