Color Throwdown #177

Good morning everyone!! Are you ready for another Color Throwdown Challenge?? Kerri  is our hostess with the mostess this week and she has picked a beautiful palette of colors and a real glamorous  inspiration photo...check it out!! I also want to welcome Jenny Peterson as our February Guest designer...Whoohoo!!! Wait till you see her fabulous creation!!!

My card features stamps from Glitz's Dance in Sunshine set and the Mojo Monday #226 Sketch...the boy and girl silhouette image was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black onto Basic Grey's Out of Print dp. The umbrella was stamped with Melon Mambo onto white cardstock, cutout and adheres with foam dots. The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped on the dp with Memento Tuxedo Black. The background papers are also from Out of Print and the Spellbinders diecut, lace and ribbons finish it off.

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors to play along...use what ever you have that is similar to the challenge colors. Be sure to add CTD177 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

oh, you are too good, Joan! always coming up with something fabulous. I love that sentiment too, and the chic colour scheme. Did you manage to sort out your craft room after all?
