CTD260 - Wine Country

Hi and thanks for stopping by today! It's Wednesday which means it time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge. 

Tammy is our host this week and I love this pretty color combo she has chosen! 

This week's colors seemed like the perfect inspiration for my scrap page with pictures from Napa Valley.

I used the Max Alphabet Stamp Set to spell out "Napa" using Red Brick Ink. "Good Times" is cut with the Accent It - Celebrate Die-namics.

I used one of my favorite scrapbooking dies, Insert It - InstaFrame Die-namics, to create this frame from corrugated paper.

The pretty sunflowers are cut with the Sunflower Die-namics, and the flourishes with the Leaf-Filled Flourish Die-namics. Any patterned paper I used is from Graphic 45's French Country. 

I hope you get a chance to play along!

You do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge,  just use the closest you have.  Use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD260.  Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!
