Color Throwdown #307

Color Throwdown #307 cropped by Tammy Hershberger

Hi friends!  Time for another Color Throwdown challenge, and Monika is our hostess this week with a great Summertime inspiration photo…

swatch 307

Now, as much as I love my Splendid Sunflower stamps and Die-Namics, I refrained from using them today!  I wanted to, but decided against it.  Instead I went with this really simple design because my mojo is still missing!

Color Throwdown #307 by Tammy Hershberger

I started out with a Pacific Point card stock base, then layered it with a Sweet Tooth card stock panel that was stamped in Grout Gray hybrid ink with the BG Diagonal Stripes background stamp.  Then I took a piece of yellow dotted paper, and die cut using the Blueprints 15.  I die-cut two piece of Pacific Point card stock using the Happy Hellos Die-Namics, then glued those together and applied a coating of Glossy Accents.  The flower was cut using Blueprints 12, and layered with a blue button.

Be sure to stop over at the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration.  Oh, AND take notice of a new Color Throwdown team member!!!  I’m so stinkin’ excited!  We loved having Jodi Collins join us as August Guest Designer so much, we asked her to stick around permanently!  Woohoo, welcome to the team, girlfriend!
