Color Throwdown #117


Are you ready to Throwdown color again this week? It's my turn to host the challenge, and my colors were inspired by some paper I picked up recently from Teresa Collins. I have the starry paper that I used here on my card, and also this fabulous cupcake paper! I found that even though shades of blue are NOT my favorite colors, this paper really spoke to me. So get busy creating.... I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Since my paper here is covered in stars, I just had to pull out my Clearly Sentimental about Emerson stamp set from My Favorite Things and use this sentiment on my card. I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this week as inspiration for my layout, but ended up turning it sideways and deviating from it slightly. Still, it was just the inspiration I needed! I added a little October Afternoon paper on the left side of my card as I felt some contrast was needed, and all the paper and cardstock was sponged with tea dye distress ink. The stars and the jumbo ric-rac are from MFT Die-Namics dies, too.
Stop over at the Color Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and also help us welcome a new Guestie for November and December!

Remember, if you don't have the exact specified colors, just use whatever you have that is most similar! Happy stamping!
