Color Throwdown 207


Lori has some some fun, summery colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!


The chevron border and blossom die layer are papers from the "Citronella" 12x12 pad by K&Co.  They will definitely wake you up - lol!  I used Melon Mambo CS for the rosette.  The CAS design is following Mona Pendleton's sketch for this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  I popped the leaves and flower on foam dots to give more dimension.

Remember...to play along, you don't have to have the exact colors.  You can choose something that's close in color.  Please use the keyword CTD207 if you upload to a public gallery and be sure to add your card to the link service at the bottom of the CTD blog post.  You'll want to stop by and visit the rest of the design team's blogs, as well as our talented guestie, Vickie Zimmer:

I want to say THANK YOU to Vickie for agreeing to be our guest this month!  I love her work and know she was an inspiration to many of you as she was to me!  Play along with us and who knows...YOU might just be a future guest designer! :-)

STAMPS: Say It Loud by Waltzingmouse Stamps
PAPER: Citronella DP by K&Co., Melon Mambo, White, Textured green from my scrap pile (?Bazzill)
INK: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: English Ivy border stamp by EK Success, Blossom Nestie, Rosette die by Tim Holtz, Leaves die by Sizzix, Button, Satin ribbon.
