Color Throwdown #332

Color Throwdown #332 cropped by Tammy Hershberger

Lori is our hostess today for Color Throwdown #332, and she’s thinking Spring with these cute boots to inspire our colors.  After all the snow we’ve had again this Winter, I dream of the need to wear a pair of boots like these on a muddy Spring day!  :)

I had fun with these colors, pulling out my Whale of a Time stamp set from The Cat’s Pajamas
Color Throwdown #332 by Tammy Hershberger
I used the current Sweet Sunday Sketch #258 for layout inspiration, and paper-pieced my whale with some aqua blue designer paper.  I added some waves from the stamp set on the navy blue panel behind the whale, and embossed the red card stock with a waves stencil.
Be sure to stop by the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration.  And we have a day of “firsts” today for our challenge… our new Guest Designer for March is none other than Joan’s daughter, Holly Brown.  AND for the first time ever, we have a man as our Guest Star Stamper, Kevin McDonald!  We welcome them both very happily!

This is adorable, Tammy! Love the fishtails, too.

AND - thank you for your sweet comment on the blog today, you made my day!

Joan Ervin said...

This is such a happy card, have worked the colors perfectly and how cute is that little whale!!!!

Wanda Cullen said...

What a sweet card! It reminds me a bit of a nurse's cap and you could paper piece it and change the star to a red cross - lol! could send it for nurse's appreciation week and thank them for a whale of a good job. :-) Not sure where that random thought came from. Guess cause I just got off work.

Super cute card Tammy. That polka-dot whale is just the sweetest. Love the layers, and the different prints! You are on the roll girl! Keep it up! :)

Holly said...

Eeeeeeee!!!!! Now how cute is that???? Love your layout and that adorable whale. Those flags sticking out from the embossed navy layer are really eyecatching - such a great way of layering your colors!

Hey Tammy,
I'm not online much so I haven't been keeping up on the stamping community BUT I was thrilled when I saw an e-mail today that said you were the hostess with the mostest for TCP. Congrats! on being a Cat Packer. I'm so very happy for you and for TCP you guys are a purrfect match. Purrhaps I'll get back to stamping and check out what's happening.
