Color Throwdown Challenge #276

Hello everyone!! Welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge! Barbara is our hostess this week and I though the color combo she picked this week would be perfect for my Grandson Ryan's birthday card...he will like it as long as I keep the yellow to a minimum...LOL!!!!

My card features the adorable Paper Smooches Super stamp set....the Super Hero was colored with Copics, cut out with the coordinating die called Super 1, and popped up with foam tape. The cityscape was cutout of basic gray card stock with the Paper Smooches Super 2 dies and lined with daffodil delight card stock. The sentiment from the PS Sentiment Sampler was stamped on the crumb cake card stock with basic gray ink and then the Talk Bubble was stamped over the sentiment, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. I didn't add any embellies so Ryan wouldn't think it was a girlie card...LOL!!!

This is also for the Smooches Paper Spark's Anything Goes Challenge!! 

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 CTD276 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.
