Color Throwdown

Hi everyone! It's Wednesday and that means it's Color Throwdown Challenge time! Broni has a really sweet color combo...inspired by this vintage Mason jar and flower photo.  I brayered Cool Caribbean ink onto a Kassie's Brocade EF then inserted some Vintage Cream CS and ran it through the Big Shot.  I popped that panel up using foam tape, then came the fun layering part!  I paper pieced the "brighter" word of the sentiment using Pretty in Pink CS.  Since I no longer had any Cool Caribbean CS, I subbed some turquoise CS that was in my leftovers stash.  I never would have thought to combine these colors, but loved the end result!  I'm also playing along with the Deconstructed Sketch Challenge.

So, jump right in and join 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 CTD248.  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!  This will be her last challenge with us, so be sure to stop by her blog and say hello!  Thanks so much for sharing with us, Wanda!
