Color Throwdown #100

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Hello!  The Color Throwdown blog is celebrating their 100th challenge today.  I thought this would be a good time to try my first throwdown challenge.  This card was really challenging, but I enjoy a good challenge.  If you don't try new things, you'll never grow and stretch your talent to new heights.  

I combined this challenge with today's Sketch Challenge at SCS.  I think I had more difficulty with the sketch than the colors.  Once I found paper that somewhat matched the colors for the throwdown I was good to go.  

This card uses so many elements, which is a little out of my comfort zone.  When I mix and match papers I tend to stick within a collection, but not today.  I have papers from Little Yellow Bicycle and Sassafras.  
The sentiment was the last element I added to my card.  I thought the overall feel of my card was elegant, so I wanted a sort of fancy looking sentiment.  I picked this "thank you" from a set from Clear and Simple Stamps.

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Have a good one!!!
