Color Throwdown #85


This week is  CTD Challenge #85, brought to you by our hostess Cathy!  Aren’t these colors of Baja Breeze, Garden Green and Certainly Celery so soft & soothing?  Just beautiful!

I hope you will be able to create something extra-special with these hues, in “honor” of Cathy, as she’ll be stepping down from the CTD team for a little break.  Be sure to check all the details on the sidebar of the CTD blog and put your creativity to work with these wonderful colors!

I chose the Mojo Sketch #131 for my layout---I thought it would be easy, but it turned into a little more of a challenge than I thought!  Here’s the sketch:


And here’s my take on it, using some retired Baja Breeze papers and Pocket Silhouettes:


This is a 6” x 3 1/4” card; I wish I had made it a little taller to compensate for the width of the ribbon.  But I hope someone will like it---it’s always good to have get well cards in my stash!  Now let’s see what the other girls have created this week:

Broni * Tammy * Cathy * Barbara * Danielle * Kristin and our Guest Designer, Pam Speidel!

As always, if you have any questions, please contact me!  Have a great day!
