Color Throwdown 123 Meets JUGS65

CTD123 banner

After a little break, the CTD girls are ready to inspire you with some fresh new throwdown combinations!  This week, Tammy is our hostess and these are her colors:

And if you pop on over to the CTD blog, you’ll see a special little surprise from our creative diva Kristin!  You’ll LOVE it!  You can find out all the details there of how to play the CTD as well!  So anyway, here’s my card:

CTD123

I used the JUGS #65 sketch as my starting point:

JUGS65

then added Kristin’s papers; some embossed vellum trimmed with a scallop trim; and my main image is a new Sale-a-bration stamp from a set called Punch Bunch!  It will be available January 25 with a $50 purchase!  I stamped it in Always Artichoke and punched it with the scallop circle punch, then stamped it again in Cameo Coral and cut out the floral elements.  I added some pearls and taffeta ribbon and I’m good to go.  I am not sure what I’ll use this for, so I left the inside blank and I’ll stamp a sentiment when I’m ready!

Now like I said, hop on over to the CTD blog and see what the other girls have come up with, including our guest designer this month, Lori Tecler!  Or you can just check them out right here:

Thanks for visiting—can’t see what you are inspired to create!
