Color Throwdown Challenge #349

Hello everyone!! Have you been watching the Women's Soccer World Cup games? We watched the US vs Germany game last was sooo good!!! The US team ROCKS!!! They won 2 - 0 and will go on to play the winner of the Japan vs England game that plays later today. My granddaughter, Mackenzie, has watched all the games and dreams of being in the World Cup one day. If that were to happen this old grandma would be sitting in the stands cheering her on!!! Anyway.... It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! Jodi is the hostess and I looove the colors she picked...white, kraft, turquoise and orange. They are so fresh and summery!! 

My card features several Taylored Expressions dies and a fun technique was used on the background.  A stencil was applied to the white card base and then Cracked Texture Paint was trowled on. The stencil was removed and the cardstock was set aside to dry. When it was dry, sponging was done with crumb cake and pool party ink. 

The frame was cut out of Toffee cardstock with one of the frame dies from the Taylored Expressions Frame on Frame Cutting Plate. The flowers were cut with the TE Silhouette Stems 4 die and the thanks sentiment was cut with a die from Taylored Expressions that was given away free with an order...gotta love those freebees!!!  The button and cording finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD349 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd349 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
