Color Throwdown #302




Hi, everyone! It's time for a new challenge! Barbara here with your colors for this week, inspired by this gorgeous scene from Venice, Italy.

Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD302. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.

A big THANK YOU to everyone who played along with my colors this past week!  I was afraid I might have scared some people away with the rather unusual combo, but you rocked the gallery with some awesome cards!

Are you ready for the big reveal???  Our featured stamper for CTD challenge #301 - picked by random.org - is.....
Check out her beautiful entry below!

Congratulations, Sarah! You're now invited to join us as our Guest Star Stamper for the challenge on July 30th.  Please email Tammy (tammyhershberger[at]gmail[dot]com) by 11:50 p.m. EST Friday, July 25th to get your Featured Stamper blinkie and to get details for the challenge.

It was tough to narrow down all the entries, but the following five cards were some of my favorite in the gallery:
#10 Jodi - gorgeous design and color balance!
#11 Becca - loved her grunge and bling details!
#32 Christine - great CAS design with a doily collage!

Color Throwdown #300

Happy, Happy Wednesday!! Time for another Color Throwdown! Vickie here bringing you this week's colors... hope you enjoy them!!



Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, it’s OK to substitute with whatever you have that is most similar.  Just be sure that your creation primarily uses only the specified challenge colors.  (All challenge rules can be reviewed in the right side bar.) Once you’ve finished your card or other paper crafting project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool we’ve provided below.  And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD300 if you upload your project to an online gallery.

Diane Jaquay is our Guest Designer for July (another fabulous card to enjoy!) and this week we also welcome Guest Star Stamper Jen Mitchell (yes, one more fabulous card in the line up).

And as a side note, we just want to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you as we mark this momentous challenge, #300!  It's been six amazing years of color combos and we greatly appreciate all of you who come back week after week to join us!  From all of our designers, past and present.... THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts!
