Color Throwdown

Another Wednesday has rolled around and that means there is a new Color Throwdown Challenge on board! Check out this fun combo by Tammy!

I embossed the kraft BG then layered up some fishtail flags and topped it off with a leafy flourish, some tiny metal flowers and a satin rose.  I thought the card top needed something to cover the flag edges, so I made a quick punched scallop border.  I like having cards in my stash without sentiments, so I can tuck a tiny tag on it at the last minute or I can add it to the inside.  The finished card is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4" square.

Remember, you don't have to use exact colors to play along...just something close.  Be sure and label your project with CTD237 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!  While you're there, be sure and check out the rest of the design team's can visit their blogs below.  Don't miss visiting our talented guest designer - the talented Frances Bryne from Stamp Owl's Studio!
