Color Throwdown #156!

Well thank goodness for the Color Throwdown. I have been so busy as of late I am barely stamping so having the CTD is keeping me in check! I could have EASILY flopped on the couch instead of crafting, LOL. DO you get like that sometimes?

I am the hostess at the Color Throwdown this week and I chose these colors to work with...

And here's what I made....

My card was inspired by THIS ONE by Debby Hughes which I love so much! I not only made this card for this week's CTD but I've also made it for this week's CAS-ual Friday Challenge #16

as well as for the Square Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World using this sketch celebrating Card Ideas week:

As you can see, I heat embossed my sentiment "congratulations" from the Rainbows & Clouds stamp set from Lil' Inker Designs for the CAS-ual Friday challenge and I incorporated the focal image of the sketch from Moxie Fab World by punching out circles using a 1 inch punch and 3/4 punch from paper scraps. This is the PERFECT way to use scraps. My kraft scrap was stamped with a text background in plum ink before punching and I added in a few rhinestones for bling!

I hope you'll get a chance to join us this week and I also hop you find the colors FUN and challenging! Head on over to the Color Throwdown Blog where you can read up on the participation details. Don't forget to visit the blogs of our Design Team to see their beautiful creations for this week:
