Color Throwdown #99


It's time for another Color Throwdown this week, and it's even more exciting 'cause we're ONE WEEK away from the PARTY celebrating Color Throwdown #100!!! You all are not going to BELIEVE the awesome prizes you're going to have a chance to win! I have been in communication with SO many fabulous companies, and have been blown away by their generosity with prizes for this big event! It's just amazing!

This week, Danielle is our hostess for CTD #99 but apparently she's having brain cramps or something 'cause she took off on a mini-vacation with her family and forgot that it was her turn to host the challenge this week! So, she gets 40 lashes when she gets back and I might make her scrub the floors with her toothbrush too, as punishment! Stop by the Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and there you'll also find the Inlinkz widget so you can link your own creation!

For my card, I pulled out a recently acquired set of stamps from Rubbernecker, and made this birthday card. I call this guy "Dumdum" after the statue in the "Night at the Museum" movie (even though I know he's not the same kind of statue!) I colored Dumdum very simply with some Copic markers after stamping him in Rich Cocoa ink. The background that I stamped on my Cool Caribbean cardstock is an ATC background stamp from Rubbernecker called Art Nouveau. It definitely has a tropical look to it, so I thought it worked well with Dumdum. I used Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday sketch for the layout on my card.
I used the Art Nouveau background again on this inside, along with my birthday sentiment...
Again, stop on over at the Color Throwdown blog for all the challenge details! And if you need further inspiration, stop at the blogs of my Throwdown sisters...

Wanda Cullen, June Guest Designer

Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!

What a cute and FUN birthday card, Tammy! I've always thought that guy was hilarious! Love how you folded and stitched your ribbon, which, by the way, is perfect!

Tammy, you are too funny (I'm picturing Danielle cleaning the floor with a toothbrush! What a hard throwdown master you are - lol!). Your card brings a big smile...especially with that great sentiment. LOVE that perfectly pleated ribbon. Thanks again for all your kindness during my guest designer time...I so enjoyed it!

Your card is hysterical! LOL Who wouldn't love getting a dumdum in the mail I ask? Love the ribbon treatment. Poor Danielle, somebody better warn her to be careful when she gets back home or she'll have noodle nasties all over her body when you're done with her! :)
