Hello everyone!! Can you believe it's Wednesday again??? It seems like just yesterday it was Wednesday...I must be getting older because time seems to just fly by!! This weeks Color Throwdown Challenge is hosted by my sweet friend, Broni, and I looove the colors she picked!! I haven't used Sahara Sand in a long time...it's fun to get out those old loved papers and create something new!!!
My card features stamps from the Taylored Expressions Petite set called Light Up My Life and the matching dies. The tall lamp base was stamped with Early Espresso, cutout with the matching die, and adhered to the Sahara Sand card base. The short, round lamp base was created with the die from the same set and Early Espresso cardstock. It was then embossed and adhered to the card base as well. The lamp shades were diecut from scraps of dp and popped up with foam dots.
The sentiment is from the same set and the twine 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 CTD285 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.
