Color Throwdown 77

DSCF6578

swatch 77Mmm, just look at these colors that Cathy picked this week!  These are absolutely lovely and I let my designer paper do the talking!  My BG Wisteria paper had all the colors I needed---I just added a flower, sentiment, ribbon, a little scallopy border and some bling!  What do you think?

I was cutting some pieces of this DP to try to make a card and I laid them perpendicular to each other and really liked the effect!  My Baja Breeze panel was scalloped with the new SU scallop punch; the flower is from Enjoy Every Moment and the sentiment is from PTI’s Mixed Messages.  I know I can always use get well cards, so this will go right in my stash!

Remember that you can play along with the CTD colors too!  You can find all the details on the CTD blog.  Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery, then link it back to Mr Linky on the CTD blog.  If you don’t have the exact colors, use something close. And be sure to check out the other designers’ creations this week:

Mmmm....love the paper and how you criss cross layered it! This is just stunning, LeAnne. I think it was a great call to keep the design and elements simple...the paper does all the talking on this one :] GORGEOUS work as always!!

I'm off to purchase that scalloped punch I think. Thanks for enabling me. Now I need a new storage bin for my punches...this one will definitely push me over my capacity.
