Color Throwdown #291

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!!! Wanda is our hostess this week and I love the fun colors she many possibilities!!!!

First, I want to say good-by to the sweet and so talented Melody was such a joy to stamp along with you each week!!!! Melody is such a scrapbook expert...she has inspired me sooo much!!!

We also have some exciting news to announce!  We have a new design team member.... the ultra-talented CINDY LAWRENCE from  The Creative Closet!  We are sooo excited to have Cindy on our team!!!!

Also, the fabulous and super talented ANNETTE ALLEN from My Clever Creations will be joining us as the May Guest Designer...welcome, Annette!!!!

I have lots of birthdays coming up so I made this card to add to my stash. I was really disappointed with my photo...the Bermuda Bay card stock looks like Tempting Turquoise. I took pictures all over the house and outside but just couldn't capture the right color. Anyway....I used two different star punches for the stars and one star was embossed with the Dotted Swiss embossing folder. The paper in the background is from  Making Memories Panorama 8x8 multipack , the happy die is from Memory Box, the birthday sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's Lots to Say set, and sewing 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 CTD291 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.
