Color Throwdown #208


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!   My sweet friend, Denise, is our hostess and she has picked some yummy looking colors for us this week!!!! 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!!! I also want to welcome the fabulous Sherry Cheever...she is our September Guest Designer....Woot!!!!


My card features the adorable kitty image from The Cat's Meow set called Summertime Fun with Fibi and Lilly. It was colored with Copics and layered over a diecut layer of Melon Mambo and a doily. The designer paper in the background is from Jillibean Soup and sewing and distressing was done around the edges. The sentiment from See D's was stamped on the cloud diecut and the twine from The Twinery finishes it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. A+T Emerald Faeries Challenge - use a doily
2. Card Mania - at the beach
3. Creative Stamp Friends - distressing
4. MyGrafico - summer


Be sure to add CTD208 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
