Color Throwdown #100 Celebration!



Hi there! I am officially back from vacation, all rested and sun-kissed. Well, as sun-kissed as a pale individual like myself CAN be! LOL! I am so excited to help Color Throwdown celebrate their 100th challenge! What a (fun!) accomplishment! Whether you are a Throwdown regular or are only now hearing about it for the first time, this is the time to join in the fun! There is a fabulous color combination to be used and TONS of great prizes to be won!


This week's special color combination is Real Red, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, and Baja Breeze. Gorgeous!! It was so much fun to play with these colors all together, and this card really just came together on its own. Thankfully. I needed a no-thinking card! :)

I started with a white cardstock base, then layered on a rectangle with strips of the four cardstock colors. I added a die cut piece made from PTI's Fillable Frames #4. The die cut piece was stamped with the matching Fillable Frames 4 stamp in Regal Rose. The sentiment comes from the NEW July Unity Stampin' Store Kit, Key to Joy & The Right Words. I LOVE this sentiment! So useful and so cute! I added some Yellow (they look light green...) Rhinestones to the top and bottom of the frame. Two red butterflies were punched using a Martha Stewart butterfly punch, and two tiny pink string bows were added to the centers of their bodies.

Your turn! Make your card and link it to the Color Throwdown Challenge 100 for your chance to win many prizes, including this Glitz Design Digital Card Making CD:

Love the layout on your card....I'm looking for inspiration for my Christmas cards (yup, make them 6 months early....I'm a loser!) and that layout works great!

Glad to hear your vacay was fun....as for being pale...from one Casper the Friendly Ghost to another, I have two words: tan towels. Go to Ulta and get a box and you'll never be pasty again (at least for a couple of days until the tan wears off)--LOL!
