Color Throwdown Celebration Challenge #200!!


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday and boy, do we have a special Color Throwdown Challenge  for you today!!!! It's our 200 challenge birthday today....Whoohoo!!!! We are going to have quite a celebration because all the CTD designers have blog candy...all you have to do is visit all the designer's blogs and leave a little love and participate in this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge...piece of cake...or should I say cupcake!!! The winners of all the designer's blog candy along with the Featured Stamper will be announced next Tuesday on the Color Throwdown Blog!!

Lynn is our hostess for this special challenge and she has picked some mighty awesome colors for us to play with this week...bright and happy!! Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors...use what you have that comes close...we want everyone to have a chance to play!!


My card features an adorable cupcake stamp from Whipper Snapper and the Sweet Sunday Sketch #162. The image was colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. My Favorite Things Die-namics dies were used for the flowers and the rick rack and I used papers from my scrap bin. The brown Pebbles and sewing were the finishing touches. 


Here is a pic of my blog candy....
1. 2 packs of Glitz blingy stickers
2. 1 pack of Glitz Paper Layer
3. 1 package of Little Yellow Bicycle Clear Cuts Shapes
4. 1 pack Little Yellow Bicycle Felt Stickers
5. 1 Hampton Arts Cling Le Cirque 3 (matches Graphic 45 papers)
6. 1 Unity Itty Bitty stamp called Country Estate Frame
7. 1 Nellie Snellen stamp set called Frog on Flower.
