Color Throwdown #301

Color Throwdown #301 close-up by Tammy Hershberger
Hello friends, and happy Wednesday!  It’s time for another Color Throwdown challenge and this week Wanda is our hostess for #301.  This color combo is really pretty, don’t you think?

I thought these colors were so pretty, but I decided to go in a different direction with them because I’ve been SO anxious to play around with my Office Supplies Die-Namics and LLD At the Office stamp set from My Favorite Things!
Color Throwdown #301 by Tammy Hershberger
I used the Office Supplies dies to create this manila envelope from Grout Gray card stock, (my supply of Smoky Slate card stock, or anything remotely similar is pretty low) and embellished with some stamps from the LLD At the Office stamp set.  The layout for my card comes from the Sweet Sunday Sketch #227 (I flipped it upside down.)  On the Kraft card stock background I stamped the BG Grid background with Kraft hybrid ink.  The diagonal stripes were cut from Sno Cone card stock using the stitched die from Blueprints 2
Be sure to stop over at the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and join us!  And visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…
