Color Throwdown


Happy Halloween everyone! It's been an eventful week for many who dealt with the effects of Hurricane Sandy and I hope you were safe during it all!  It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and this week, sweet Kerri has some great colors for us...inspired by this gorgeous room (those chairs look so comfy...just right to curl up and read a good book)!


I'm also entering this card into Chupa's CASE Study Challenge where she has picked this card by Julia Stainton on the right as our inspiration.   Instead of crimping, I used a herringbone EF on the kraft panel.  I loved the layout, so stuck with it pretty closely.

Here's hoping you'll play along with us! For more details about the CTD challenge, please check out the Color Throwdown blog.  Remember, you don't have to have the exact colors...just use something close.  We're sad to see that the month is over for our talented guest designer, Dawn Easton!  We've enjoyed having her join us with her beautiful creations!

Love this, Wanda! The navy and black were hard to work in together, but you did it perfectly!
