Color Throwdown Challenge #353

by DJ on July 29, 2015

Post image for Color Throwdown Challenge #353

In a rush last night I made a card based on the color combo for the Color Throwdown challenge…problem!! The problem was that I used last week’s color combo and didn’t realize it until I went to post it!!  That is what I get for looking on FB for the color combo!!  Oh well….I decided to case my first card using the new colors!!  So, you get two cards…one with last week’s combo and one with this week’s combo!! Butterfly Basics CTD#353 (2) Follow Me on Pinterest

Card design:  Butterfly Basics stamp set and matching Thinlits die from Stampin Up…1st card’s color combo–Perfect Plum, Daffodil Delight & Wild Wasabi…2nd card’s color combo–Wild Wasabi, Tempting Turquoise, Smokey Slate & Basic Gray…basic collage stamping and layering.

Here is my take on this week’s sketch challenge from the As You See It blog. Winter in July?? With temps in the high 90’s it seems weird to make a snow-scape card.  But who can resist with this Sheltering Tree stamp set from Stampin Up?  It makes a great wintery scene!!
