Color Throwdown Day! More Sentiment Flags and a Chicken Girl Giveaway!!

Good Morning! It's my favorite day of the week! I have a fun project to share with you today featuring my new die and stamp set, Sentiment Flags (available now and will begin shipping TOMORROW) as well as this great image from Chicken Girl Designs and OF COURSE, today's Color Throwdown colors. Tammy is our Throwdown Hostess this week and she's got a sweet combo for us. Check it out:

Here's what I made:

I started with this fun image from Chicken Girl Designs available exclusively at I Heart Papers called On the Moove. It's one of the images from the August release and it's totally my favorite. And today, one lucky commenter on this post will be entered to win a FREE August Release image of their choice!
As soon as I saw this image I knew I had to make a little scene and have her driving on a little road! As I was putting this together over the weekend I thought this scene would be a perfect way to incorporate the flag pole image from the Sentiment Flags stamp set! I stamped the polka-dotted border (one of 5 fun borders in the set) around the "On the Moove" sentiment in Tempting Turquoise which I printed from my computer and stamped my flag pole in Basic Grey ink from SU!. I popped up her sunglasses with foam dots for some added dimension.
I layered my focal panel on Melon Mambo and then on some Lemon Tart paper not Daffodil Delight, which just worked better I thought. But that's the beauty of this challenge, you can use what you have that's close. I thought my cloud paper background was also pretty close to turquoise :)
How can you play? Make a card or other papercraft related project and upload it to your blog or online gallery(using keyword CTD109) and then link it to the Color Throwdown Blog by using the InLinkz tool and a direct link to your post or gallery picture. Not sure on the direct link? Check out the detailed instructions on the CTD blog for some extra help.
