Color Throwdown #312

Color Throwdown #312 cropped by Tammy Hershberger

Hello friends!  It's time for another Color Throwdown, and this week Broni is the hostess for challenge #312.  She's bringing us into Fall with these lovely colors...

swatch 312

I pulled out a favorite set, LJD Primitive Pumpkins with the matching dies from My Favorite Things to make my card. 

Color Throwdown #312 by Tammy Hershberger

The tag was cut using the Pierced Traditional Tag STAX, and I added a Die-Namics Woodgrain Fence behind the pumpkins.  On the Black Licorice card stock I used some graphite black Ferro to emboss some stars from the MPD Stargaze stencil, and on the Kraft card stock base I added some stripes on the left side using Steel Grey hybrid ink and Tangy Orange hybrid ink and the DC Plaid Background Builder stamp set.

Be sure to stop over at the CTD blog for all the challenge details, AND to welcome our new October Guest Designer!  And be sure to visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration...
