Color Throwdown & SSSC

Hi everyone! It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and our hostess, Lori, was inspired by this fun little book bag!  Makes me want to go back to school again...NOT!! :-)

I immediately knew I wanted to play with this Fresh Cut Florals set with coordinating dies by W Plus 9.  I used Karen Giron's sketch for her Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and tweaked it a bit by adding a DP base that peeked out on either side of the white panel.

Remember, you don't have to have the exact colors listed...just use something close.  Be sure to use the keyword CTD257 when you post to a public gallery and you also want to link it up on the Color Throwdown blog.

For more inspiration, you'll want to check out the projects by the rest of the design team...along with our August guest designer below.  We have to say goodbye to Kendra as this month's guest designer, but wanted to thank her for sharing her wonderful creations with us!  Stay tuned next Wednesday when we'll announce our September guestie!
