Happy 5th Anniversary CTD!



Hi everyone and welcome to... 
Color Throwdown's 5th anniversary celebration!
There are lots of great prizes to be won - thanks to many generous companies who have donated for this special milestone!  We also have former design team members who are playing along and you don't want to miss their inspiring creations!  
For all the details and links...please visit the Color Throwdown blog.


Here's my interpretation of Lori's fun colors based on the summery flip flops photo.   I used MFT's Peek-a-boo Dots Die-Namics and "lined" the card with Bermuda Bay CS.  The peonies were stamped off once for the base color, then full Melon Mambo ink stamped on top.  For the roses, I used Daffodil Delight ink for the base stamp and So Saffron for the second stamping.  I did NOT want to frame the sentiment, but I goofed by pushing too hard when I stamped the sentiment, so had to cover up the mistake with the framed version...grrrrr!  

STAMPS: Rosie Posie and Rosie Posie Step 2 by PTI
PAPER: Kraft (PTI), Bermuda Bay (SU), White (PTI), Black (PTI)
INK: Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, So Saffron, Versafine Onyx Black 

With a family wedding and vacation going on last week, I failed to recognize our July guest designer, Stacey Schafer!  Be sure and visit her blog to see her awesome creation for today's colors!  It's also her birthday today...so HAPPY BIRTHDAY, STACEY!

So...don't miss out on the chance to win some great stamping goodies!  Looking forward to seeing what you create!

Beautiful card Wanda! I'm looking at how you die cut your dotted border and thinking "why don't I ever think of doing something like that" lol. Love your pretty arrangment of roses and inspirational sentiment.

Gorgeous!! Love those flowers and the background is fabulous with them!! Both of these are sets I have been pondering for a while and you may have tipped me over the edge, LOL!! Assuming there is a trick to the MFT dots die!!

Coming back to say- I am sooo slow!! Get the dots and "lined" now!! Honestly it looks like the little dots are tiny pieces on top, LOL!!
