Color Throwdown #308

CTD308 cropped
It’s time for my favorite part of the week… Hump Day and Color Throwdown day!  :)  Are you ready for another challenge?  Joan is our hostess this week and she’s trying to hold on to the last bits of Summer with these bright, sunny colors…

With the shade of orange in there, I had no choice but to use my new Fresh ‘n Fruity stamp set from Reverse Confetti.  Ever since this set was released, I saw so many cute cards using it so I finally gave up resisting and ordered it last week!

I’ve got lots of polka dots happening on my card this week!  LOL  But I just love ‘em… polka dots are timeless.  I also used the September Sketch for You to Try from Reverse Confetti for my card layout.  Starting with the orange card stock base, I added a white panel that was embossed with the Large Polka Dots stencil from My Favorite Things, and then added two strips of yellow polka dot designer paper from Echo Park that were cut with the Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-Namics.  The bright pink tag was die-cut using the Tag Me Confetti Cuts from RC.  I stamped the tag with Razzle Berry hybrid ink using the BG Diagonal Stripes background stamp, and then stamped the sentiment.  I finished my card with an orange polka dot ribbon, and some enamel dots.
I added another orange and the rest of the sentiment on the inside…
