Color Throwdown


It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and you're going to LOVE playing
with these great colors picked out by Kerri this week!

I started out using Jen Shults' Deconstructed Sketch for the layout and I'm hoping she won't gong me for taking some liberties with the design!  I dropped the rectangular element to the lower part of the card and highlighted the sentiment (a great new one by Flourishes) with some of my fave rolled roses die cut out of Riding Hood Red CS.  The leaves were cut using a Spellbinders' Foliage die then sponged with Garden Green ink.    The DP "did most of the talking"...perfect to fill up the large empty space of the sketch!   I sponged the heart using Crumb Cake ink and it was also a die cut called Tipsy Hearts by Sizzix.  

Remember, you don't have to use exact colors to play along...just something close.  Be sure and label your project with CTD234 if you upload to a public gallery.  You'll need to link up on the Color Throwdown blog as well. Can't wait to see what you create with these gorgeous colors!  While you're there, be sure and check out the rest of the design team's creations...OR...you can visit their blogs below.

I always struggle with how to use sheets of paper like the Eiffel Tower print and you have just given me an example of exactly how to do it. Love the way you did the top of the card too Wanda! Hugs!
