Color Throwdown #80

swatch 80

Danielle really threw down a challenge with this color combo! I chose to use  Sage Shadow, Really Rust and Bravo Burgundy for my colors.   Normally I would have gone for a floral; I thought about using some digi images and going vintage; then I thought about funky….so here’s my take on fun & funky, CTD-style!  We want you to play too!  Check out all the details on the CTD blog so you make sure you follow the rules, then post your creation on your own blog or online gallery, using CTD80 as the keyword.  Link it using the InLinkz feature so we can all see them!!!  Here’s my take:

DSCF6852

This card uses cute images from My Cute Stamps’ Little Forest Friends, and some fun DP from Cosmo Cricket’s Nutmeg line.  The rest is pretty explanatory---it’s a simple card, just a few cuts & pop-ups for some interest!!!

Now be sure to check out what all the other designers did with this color combo---you’ll be glad you did:

Thanks for visiting today!

OMG, your card is awesome, LeAnne! LOVE how you trimmed the bottoms of the leaves on the top panel and added a few extra, and that owl peeking out from the hole in your "tree" is so clever! Super duper cute!!
