Color Throwdown & Big Celebration!

Happy Wednesday to everyone! We've got a super combination of patriotic colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge...compliments of the talented Joan! Isn't that a yummy inspiration photo as well?!

I went with some fun papers from We R Memory Keepers' "Yankee Doodles" 6x6 pad!  I'll admit there's only a teensy bit of the greenish blue on board - check out the Island Lagoon rhinestones by Kaiser! :-)  Now, you've got to have some sparkle when you're celebrating, so I used the stars Die-Namics from MFT with silver glitter CS by SU.  I popped some of the stars with foam dots.  The sentiment is from Verve's American Hero set and the stamped frame is from Verve's Tag Time set.  The Curvy Bookplate die (Verve) was used to cut out the sentiment.  

We in the states may be celebrating the 4th of July holiday this week, but next week there will be another super celebration that you won't want to miss!  
It will be Color Throwdown's 5th anniversary!!!!!
The design team members have been busy behind the scenes and we have a fabulous list of prizes to be given out to some lucky participants in next week's challenge (thanks to some very generous company donors which we'll announce next week)!  I'm excited and hope you will join us and spread the word!  In the meantime...head over to the Color Throwdown blog and check out the DT's inspiration photos...then get creative yourself!
