Color Throwdown Challenge #274


Hello everyone....welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge! Vickie is the hostess with the mostess and she has picked some really pretty, crisp, and fresh colors for us to play with!!! Barbara redesigned our color swatch, too...doesn't it look awesome!!!


My card features the cute guitar stamp from Unity's October 2009 Kit of the Month. My New Year's resolution this year is to use as many of my older stamps as I can...they all need a little love!!! The guitar was colored with Copics, cutout, and popped up on the round layer. The sentiment stamp is from Reverse Confetti's Celebrate Cake set and the sketch is the Sweet Sunday Sketch #201. The button, hemp cording, and sequins finish it off. 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors.....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD274 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You can find out all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
