Color Throwdown #38

throwdownbanner38

Well, Broni has chosen some neat colors this week for our 38th challenge:  Ruby Red, Basic Gray and Baja Breeze.

I just know there are going to be some beautiful cards made with these colors--the CTD designers knocked my socks off with their cards!  If you don't have these exact colors, just use the closest you've got.  Be sure to post your creations on your blog or online gallery and link them back to Mr Linky on the CTD blog.  (Make sure you use your exact post address when linking!)  Use the keyword "CTD38" if you use a gallery.  I can hardly wait to see what's coming!

I hadn't done a vintage card for a while, and I am trying to use some stamps that have been collecting dust on my shelf, so I pulled out Puns from the Past and that yummy new BG Marrakesh paper:

I also pulled out my 1972 Singer Touch N Sew that weighs about 100 pounds, but I just couldn't make a "sewing" card without doing some actual sewing!  The patterned pieces are from BG's Marrakesh and Stella Ruby.  I sewed them onto a Basic Gray card using a couple different styles of stitches.  I thought the felt heart was a sweet addition to the sentiment, which is from PTI's Quilter's Sampler Sentiments.  An assortment of vintage buttons and some tea-dyed lace finished the outside.    Here are a couple closeups:

I also finished the inside so the sewing wouldn't be visible:

DSCF3776 Isn't this paper gorgeous?  I almost hoarded it and chose something plain, but it was calling me!  I added a couple strips down the left side and was tempted to sew them as well, but it was getting late!!!  I left the inside blank, as I haven't decided for what occasion I'll use this card.

 

Well, be sure to check out what the CTD designers have come up with this week!  You won't be disappointed!  And we have our Guest Designer for March featured this week too!
