Color Throwdown #332 - Guest Designer



Hi folks!  I have some fun news to share with you today.  I have been asked to be a guest designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge this month!  Each week on Wednesdays, there will be a new color challenge posted and I will share my cards with you both here and on the Color Throwdown blog.

This week, Lori is the hostess and she picked a fabulous inspiration picture for her colors.  The colors are kraft, navy, red, and turquoise.



I loved the bold stripes on that rubber boot, so I used that for my background.  I added a kraft sentiment and a quill and inkpot die cut from kraft cardstock.  Those bold stripes really take command against the kraft card base and it helps the kraft die cuts stand out.

Such fun colors to play with this week!  I hope you join along in the Color Throwdown with us.  Remember, be sure to add CTD332 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations.

You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
