Color Throwdown #299

Color Throwdown #299 with My Favorite Things Stacking Stars by Tammy Hershberger (1)
Hey friends, Happy (almost) Independence Day!  I’m hosting the Color Throwdown challenge this week, and I thought this somewhat Patriotic color-combo would be fun to try this week…

Whadya’ say… wanna’ give it a try?  Stop over at the Color Throwdown blog for all the challenge details and join us!
Here’s my card…
Color Throwdown #299 with My Favorite Things Stacking Stars by Tammy Hershberger
I started out by using some translucent embossing paste on the Strawberry Slush card stock with the MPD Stargaze stencil.  After my stars dried I cut the card stock using the Blueprints 15 Die-Namics,
which gave it that nice angled look.  I stamped the sentiment from the LLD Document It-Right on Target stamp set in Tumbled Glass distress ink.  After I tied some silver cord around the red cardstock, I used my Die-Namics Stacking Stars to cut out a few stars with Tempting Turquoise and Whip Cream card stock.  I finished this clean and simple design by spritzing the starry panel with some MIX-ables Sheer Shimmer Mist and adhering it to the Whip Cream card stock base.
So, be sure to stop over at the CTD blog for all the challenge details!  And for more inspiration, visit my Throwdown sisters…
