Color Throwdown!

colorthrowdownswatch+331This is a new challenge for me! The Color Throwdown! And I’m totally intrigued by the concept. It’s an “anything goes” with the design BUT the colors are what counts! I love this weeks palette. Pinks and greens are always bright and happy. Springtime! Friends! Fun!

I started with a 5×7 Kraft base card-side fold. I used White Daisy card stock to Pop the hot pink background and texture (patterned) paper. The papers are from Close To My Heart. The Brushed paper pack has all the colors I needed for this color challenge. So Cool! I mounted another piece of White Daisy and some more of the patterned paper to build my focal point on.

The cute stamp is from the exclusive “Hostess Only” stamp set called “Better with a Friend”. (A good reason to be a Close To My Heart Hostess!) I used Shin Han markers to color in the design. I added coordinating embellishments including Stuck on You puffies (only available until thru the end of march!) Extra Thick Pixie Twine and bitty sparkles. The word strips are from the “My Crush” Pink Sticky Tabs. So easy and fun to add to all your paper projects.

And there it is. I think it’s a fun card to give a daughter or a friend. Someone who likes to shop!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll leave a comment.
