Color Throwdown #230
It’s Color Throwdown time again and this week Barbara, the One-Handed Wonder is our hostess with this earthy color combo. I initially HATED these colors… I do NOT do shades of blue, especially blues like Marina Mist. I. JUST. DON’T. LIKE. IT! But then I found a paper pad from My Mind’s Eye hiding in my stash that I thought was a good (enough!) match for these colors. Remember, if you don’t have the exact colors it’s OK to substitute! (And yes, I’m pretending I didn’t have the exact colors! LMHO!) So here’s my card…..
There’s a couple from my church I’ve been wanting to send a card to…. he’s working many, many hours and trying to get his degree, and she is at home with the kids just trying to keep everything running smoothly. So I thought this cowboy from My Favorite Things, along with the sentiment I added inside (see below) would be a good note of encouragement for them both. The cowboy comes from the new Cowboy at Heart a ‘la modes stamp set from MFT and for the layout I used the Guest Designer sketch for this month. I used a few Die-Namics here as well… the Fishtail Flags STAX and the Oval Chain Border.
Here’s the inside, using a sentiment from the Triple Scoop set for this month…
Please be sure to visit my Color Throwdown sisters for more inspiration. And stop by the CTD blog for all the challenge details!
