Color Throwdown Challenge #352

Hello everyone!!! OMG...the time has just flown by this week!! It seems like all I have to do is blink and 2 days fly by...what's up with that?? The Grands have been in and out all summer...I never know from day to day how many to cook for or what sheets to wash but I am lovin every minute!!! Mackenzie and Caitlyn will be here today at lunch time and then Autumn will arrive later in the afternoon with the boyfriend to stay for a couple of days. I think we will talk Grandpa and David into a little BBQ tonight. I love it when the men cook...they tend to keep the mess outside...LOL!!!!!! Anyway...
It's Wednesday again and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Tammy is our hostess and what fun colors she picked: mint green, lime green, light gray and dark gray!!! I never would have reached for this combo but now I will be using it often....I Loooove it!!! Thanks, Tammy!!!

My card features one of my favorite WPlus9 sets called Fanciful Feathers. The feathers were stamped with Smoky Slate, Kiwi Kiss, and Mint Melody (retired SU). The sentiments from the same set were stamped with Basic Gray and a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock was used as the mat. The sketch is the #2 Get Sketchy challenge on the WPlus9 Design blog. 

I loved the colors so much that I made another card...same stamps and colors but a different design. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD352 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd352 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.

Very pretty Joan. Love the amazing feathers and the angle you stamped them in. The style of the greeting is awesome.

Mint Melody, along with Barely Banana are both SU! colors that should never have been retired! LOVE your feathers here, Joan! Awesome cards! (And you're welcome... for picking these colors! LOL)

Valentyna Komisarenko said...

Shelly Schmidt said...

I think color challenges are the most difficult......and Wow- love these cards- fantastic idea and great interpretation of the color challenge. Hope you are having a relaxing summer and enjoying all of the company. I love the grill days and no clean-up in the kitchen : )

Broni said...

These are awesome cards, Joan! Love them both! And I agree....I love these colors together and will be using them again!

Gorgeous design, Joan! I love the feathers in those colors, so soft and they are floating across the page. Perfect for this sketch!

Kim S said...

I'm glad to read that I'm not the only one that has really old colors like Mint Melody. Isn't it fun that the old colors are coming back into style again? I love both of your layouts. The diagonal feathers are really eye-catching, but I also love the bigger, bolder look on the second card.
