Color Throwdown #408

Hello blog friends! Are you ready for some football?  Oops...I mean...are you ready for a new Color Throwdown Challenge?  Actually, I'm ready for both!  Check out these great primary colors that our hostess Lynn has chosen...a reflection of back to school time.  Those chevrons on the cake jumped out at me immediately and I knew I wanted to use MFT's Zigzag Die-Namics and their Happy Birthday sentiment die that I got as a freebie with one of my orders (it's available to buy).

The balloon stamps and dies are from WPlus9's Whole Lotta Happy set.  I added the balloon strings freehand with a black gel pen. This was a really quick and easy card to throw together!

INK: Real Red, Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight.

Congratulations to our guest star stamper - Agnieszka Danek-Wisniak! Be sure to stop by her blog and say hello.

I'm sad to see Wanda Guess leave as our guest designer - her cards are always so inspiring - but stay tuned...we'll have another talented guestie to announce next week!

To get all the details on how to play along with the challenge, please go to the Color Throwdown blog and check out the info on the right sidebar!  You can also check out the rest of the design teams' creations for more inspiration on the CTD blog.. or you can clink on their blog links below.

What an awesome birthday card! I love how you used the chevrons on your card that are from the inspiration photo and your balloons are super cute.
