Color Throwdown Challenge #303

Hello everyone!!! Can you believe that August is almost here....where did the summer go?? The grands are all getting school clothes and seems that every year they get new clothes for school and then a month later they have a growth spurt!! What's up with that?? I guess the secret is to wait till September to shop for school clothes but all the sales are in August....what a bummer!!! Anyway....It's Wednesday and that means it's time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!! Broni is our hostess and she has picked some fun and pretty colors. 

I was a little  intimated with this color combo ...while looking through my patterned paper pads I discovered the KaiserCraft Christmas Carnival paper pad and it had several pages of tags and trim...Bingo!!!! The tags were arranged with some matting and washi tape was added to the background along with the paper trim. The ribbon and enamel dots finish it off. This was so easy that I almost feel like I cheated...LOL!!!

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 CTD303 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
