Woohoo! The Color Throwdown is on challenge #99---but are you ready for next week, when the CTD celebrates 100 challenges? It is going to be awesome….you NEED to check it out! There are going to be SO many awesome samples…… and some other awesome stuff being given away too!!! But we have to WAIT another whole week---but it will be here before we know it, so let’s look at the colors Danielle chose for us this week:
Remember, you can find all the rules and regs over on the CTD blog---we want you to be able to play even if you don’t have the exact colors, just make sure they’re close! In fact, I chose some vintage shades of the CTD colors today to make my card. That Graphic 45 On The Boardwalk DP was calling its siren song to me, I just couldn’t resist using it again this week:
Not much stamping here…and this has to be one of the most unusual cards I’ve ever made! At least as far as embellishments go…..see that little doodad in the bottom right corner….
what IS that thing, anyway? I found it in my grandma’s button tin, and it had a shank on one end, like a button, and a ring on the other, but for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out what it actually was. But it had a nice aqed turquoise patina on it, so I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into my card. I did some curvy sewing and added some additional turquoise shades with the old button, some floss and French knots….to highlight that “Hey Sexy” sentiment! Fun!! Someone who has a good sense of humor will get THIS card! I think this bathing beauty could have been my grandmother:
