Color Throwdown #23

CTD23 banner

Wow, week 23 of the Color Throwdown! Today, Kim has chosen Pink Pirouette, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss (or Old Olive) as her colors!

CTD23 swatch

These colors just reminded me so much of the beautiful SU designer paper, Bella Rose, so I pulled out some scraps and some matching buttons and made a simple little card:

CTD23

It took longer to tie all the little strings on the buttons than it did to make the card! The rub-on was colored with a blender pen and ink (hard to see the flower, but it is pink!) just to give it a little more "coordination"! I hope you can use this combination to make something beautiful for a special someone! Just post a comment at the Color Throwdown blog linking your creation, or post it on an online gallery, using the keyword CTD23. Now let's see what our other designers made this week:

  20. I honestly couldn't tell you how my FIRST visit with Santa went, but later down the line, I had a big list of wishes for him. And once, I accused the mall santa of being a fake. My mom was NOT happy with me.
