CTD290 - Smile

Thanks for stopping by for Color Throwdown 290! It's Tammy's turn to host this weeks challenge! She has chosen this fun mix of colors for us to work with this week.

I hope you get a chance to play along for a chance to be next week's Guest Star Stamper!

I am sad to say that this will be last post as a member of the Color Throwdown Team. I have SO enjoyed being on this team with such talented, creative and fun ladies. Thank you girls for having me as a member of the group!! 

I have a scrapbook page to share today. I didn't have a peachy pink in my stash, so I used a light pink. 

The photo is from my daughter's last college  dance show. My patterned paper is from Melissa Frances. 

In the corner I added a flower created with the Botanical Beauty Die-namics. Behind the flower is a doily cut with the Dainty Doily Die-namics and the sentiment is cut with the Accent It - Story Starters Die-namics.

Here the sentiment is from the Complimentary Greetings Stamp Set. The smile sentiment is cut out with a die in the Blueprints 13 Die-namics. The scalloped border at the bottom is cut with the Jumbo Scallop Border Die-namics. 

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.
