Color Throwdown #492

Hello friends.  This week's challenge at Color Throwdown is one I never would have thought of but have to admit I really like the colors together!


Here's what I came up with using red, light yellow, light gray, and white:


I've been having FUN playing around with Concord & 9th's Wreath Turnabout stamp set, and decided to try this week's challenge colors with it.  Because you need to turn your square 4 times to stamp, and because I didn't want to use white as one of my colors since my background was white, I used 2 colors of red...GinaK's Red Relvet and Cherry Red.  Here's a closer up to see the difference between the reds:


I used PTI's Wet Paint dies and stamps for my sentiment...I die cut 3 of the "hello's" in light yellow (So Saffron) to add a little dimension to the card.  I layered my card with more So Saffron and a card base of Smoky Slate, and then added a few sequins and bakers twine to finish off my card.

There's still time to play in this challenge and LOTS of beautiful and fun examples from the DT to inspire you...check it all out right HERE.
 
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
