Celebrating Five Years With The Color Throwdown!


 

I am so thrilled to be a part of the birthday celebration at The Color Throwdown today! I had the honor of being a Guest Designer with them last summer during July. I can't believe that was a year ago! And here we are at the 250th Color Throwdown Challenge! Not only do they have great color combos, but I love each of the women on their team!

Be sure to visit the Color Throwdown Blog for a list of all participating alumni and guest designers, AND.... there are FABULOUS prizes to be had if you join in the challenge too! Check it out for all the deets~!

Here is our color inspiration for this 250th week!
My card today is made using Reverse Confetti's Dream in Color, available at i {heart} papers. I thought it was the perfect set to celebrate the Color Throwdown! 
One of my new favorite paper collections is Hip Hip Hooray by American Crafts. It had perfect colors for the challenge. 
I arranged three sentiment pieces on my block and then stamped them on my paper using Memento Rosebud ink. I added a cork arrow from the Fancy Pants' Cork Shapes Label Stickers (from IHP), some banners, and some paper flowers for my embellishments. I had most of these things on my desk already, so it was nice to use something twice before I had to put it away again.
Thanks so much for stopping by to help celebrate CTD250! Don't forget to play along for a chance at those amazing prizes!

I will have Day #3 of Growing in Unity later this morning, so stop back by for a chance to win some Unity too~!
