Celebrating CTD #200 & Blog Candy Give-away!


In honor of our 200th color challenge, the Color Throwdown gals have a little fun planned for you this week. Not only have each of the CTD designers created fantastic projects using the colors and inspiration photo for this week, but each team member also has blog candy to give away to a lucky Color Throwdown participant!
So what's up for grabs and how do you play along?
First, visit each of the CTD team members blogs and leave comments on their projects.
Next, create a card or project using the colors from this week's challenge and submit your project on the CTD blog HERE using the Inlinkz at the bottom of the post.  Lynn is our hostess for this week and she has chosen a really fun inspiration picture for us!
As always, if you don’t have the exact colors, it’s no problem...just substitute with what you have that’s close to this week’s colors.  And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD200 if you upload your project to an online gallery.  Next Tuesday, you'll want to check back with the CTD blog to see the featured stamper and the blog candy winners from each of the DT members' blogs will be listed.                          You must participate in this week's Color Throwdown Challenge in order to be eligible to win any of the blog candy that's being offered by the team.  
Now that I've hopefully covered all the details, let me move on to the card I created...
IRL, the herringbone BG looks more like a light orange shade instead of the golden shade that shows up in the photo. :-(  The card base is Pumpkin Pie CS  and is 5 1/4" square.  I wanted to do this paper quilting technique that I used when I was a Limelight Designer on the Flourishes' blog in February.  If you want step-by-step directions on the process, please refer to my post HERE.  I used the Kassie's Brocade EF (love that Cuttlebug is making their folders in 5x7" sizes now) to emboss the finished star pattern and I used Creative Memories' square punch which is a bit larger than the 1" squares I used in the tutorial (it's about 1 1/4" square).   

STAMPS: Joyful Blooms by Verve, Sentiment Flags by 'Lil Inker Designs
PAPER: Vintage Marketplace DP and Avalon DP - both by Bazzill Basics Paper, Pumpkin Pie, Vintage Cream
INK: Chocolate Chip
ACCESSORIES: Fanciful Flourish die by Cheery Lynn Designs, Prima by Petaloo, Button, Kassie's Brocade EF by Cuttlebug, Lil Inker Designs flag die
