COLOR THROWDOWN #250!!!

swatch 250

OH. MY. WORD!  Can you tell I’m excited?  How awesome is it that today we are celebrating FIVE YEARS OF THE COLOR THROWDOWN!!  I can’t believe it’s been that long already.. seems like just yesterday!  I hope you’re going to join us for the challenge today (being hosted by Lori!) for the chance to win some fabulous prizes!  Be sure to head over to the CTD blog for all details.  Also exciting today is the fact that we have a bunch of our former Color Throwdown designers, as well as former Guest Designers joining us to help celebrate!  You’ll find links to them all over on the blog!

Here’s my card for the festivities…

CTD250

These colors just screamed Summer to me, and this Whipper Snapper chicken image fits the bill!  She’s one of my faves!  I colored her up with Copics (gave her a nice tan, too!) and embellished with some Die-Namics die cuts, ribbon and enamel dots.  And this card was already delivered earlier in the week to my sweet mail lady who takes such good care of me!  She always recognizes packages with stamps in them, and will text me to let me know so I had to make sure to wish her a happy birthday!

Please visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration today, and don’t forget all the alumni designers too, that are linked on the CTD blog today!

PLEASE join us for the celebration!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

Happy stamping!
