Color Throwdown 126 & SSSC101


Hey there, everyone!  It’s Wednesday and that means Color Throwdown!  Today, Danielle is our hostess and she has chosen these earthy colors to throw down:

swatch 126

I am feeling a little under the weather, so I did an easy card using some wonderful BG papers that I found that had most of the colors I needed!  I also used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #101:


I chose to make mine square in order to fit my DP better:


My sentiment is a digi from my friend Arielle’s little shop, Wax Fruit Company.  I printed it on Whisper White, then brayered it with River Rock and stamped Sanded in Crumb Cake over top.  My Copic selection is not too extensive, so the color’s not quite Marina Mist!  The flourish is from Verve’s A Cup of Life. 


My single embellishment is a little shabby flower made from the various DPs using my Boho Blossoms punch .  All in all, a pretty easy card which will go to a friend who is going through a rough time right now!

Be sure to check out what the other CTD designers have come up with this week:


  • Stamps:  Sanded; A Cup of Life, Flourishes
  • Paper:  Marina Mist, Early Espresso, WW, Old Olive, BG Stella Ruby & Lemonade
  • Ink:  Crumb Cake, River Rock
  • Acc:  Nesties, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Boho Blossom Punch, Brad, Dimensionals, Dauber

This is fabulous, LeAnne! I love how you took a digital image and added a few things like the background and flourish to customize it! Love the flower, too!

This is stunning, LeAnne! I LOVE that patterned paper and how you made the sentiment your focal point. Totally appropriate for the occasion, I'd say. Your 3-D bloom is a lovely accent ♥

This is such a fabulous design, LeAnne! I love the papers you picked to work with!

This is just lovely! I really like the effect you got from stamping and brayering over the sentiment. Thanks so much for having me as a guest this month--I had a great time.
