CTD261 - Summer Fun

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

Vickie is our host this week and she chose this bright and sunny color combo!

This week's color combo is perfect inspiration for scrapping a few summer pictures! 

I used the Graduated Dots Stencil and Light Molding Paste to add texture to the page.

The sun is cut with the Sunshine Die-namics and I added a button the center.

The arrows are cut with the dies in the Lead the Way Die-namics. I cut the arrow twice, once from chipboard and once from card stock. Love making my own chipboard embellishments! The word "fun" is created with the High-Rise Alphabet Lowercase Die-namics. 

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 CTD261.  Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!
