Color Throwdown

It's Wednesday and it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! We've got this wonderful patriotic color combo and inspiration photo on board...thanks to the talented Barbara Anders!  I took a different route with the theme (yep, pun intended) since I needed a masculine card. :-)

The card is 3 1/2" by 6 1/2" and includes a pocket on the inside to tuck in a gift card or money.  I used a couple of metal gear embellishments by Tim Holtz to add more masculine "flavor".  The vintage truck was stamped with navy ink over a denim print paper then fussy cut and popped over the postcard.  The little banners were cut from one of the designer papers.

 So, climb aboard and play along with us!  Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use something that's close...we want you to have fun!  If you upload to a public gallery, be sure and use the key words CTD247.  Also, link up your card on the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.  For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations...including our talented June guest designer, Wanda Guess!
