Color Throwdown #235

swatch 235
It’s Wednesday, and that means time for another Color Throwdown challenge!  Denise is our hostess this week, and she has this color combo for today that’s inspired by these delectable cupcakes!  Oh my, they look delish!
I struggled with these colors.  They’re a little mono-chromatic to me, and that always puts a roadblock up on my creative mojo.  However, I snuck a little peek at some of the cards from the other team members this week, and saw that Broni used an old My Mind’s Eye paper pad on her card.  Once I looked and found the same pad, and papers that worked well with these colors, I was off and running!  Here’s my card, using the Mojo Monday sketch #286 for this week…
I decided to have some fun with a stamp set I hadn’t yet inked up from Papertrey Ink for my card, and played up on the arrow element in the sentiment by adding an arrow cut with my Lead the Way Die-Namics from My Favorite Things.  I embossed the background with a brick wall embossing folder and added a few chocolate brown pearls for embellishment.
Be sure to stop by the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration!
