Color Throwdown #51

Welcome back to the 51st Color Throwdown challenge!!! Can you believe how time flies? We have something new in store for you at The Color Throwdown today...we are proud to say that we have started a sponsor program and our sponsor this week is....



Here is a little bit about DRS Designs...

DRS Designs is a small family owned company. We have been in the rubber stamp business since 1955 and have been thru many changes since that time. No change was more significant than the addition of art stamps in 1992. In the ensuing 16 years, we have grown our collection to more than 1000 original stamp designs with more being added each month. We offer online shopping from our website, a monthly club - Rubber Mania Monthly, as well as a retail store in Bethel, CT. If you are in the area, stop by our cozy Victorian shop and say hello!
We offer high quality, wood mounted rubber stamps as well as unmounted rubber depending on your preference. We have a 10 person design team and a blog that is updated daily by each member of the team. Every two weeks on a Monday, we host a blog challenge and invite you to join us! Our online site features a gallery for each designer as well as a customer gallery. We hope you will participate in our challenges and email us your cards so we can include them in our growing galleries.
We offer a wide assortment of images, sentiments (serious and humorous) as well as easy background images and technique stamps such as our stained glass and our plaid stamps.
You can find us online at DRS Designs and our blog which is updated daily.


Here is the generous prize that DRS has offered to one lucky/random winner...





(If you or your company would like to sponsor us here at The Color Throwdown, contact Cathy at stamper_c at yahoo dot com.)

Please be sure to read below on how to be eligible to win this awesome prize. This will also be posted in our sidebar for quick and easy reference. Please keep in mind that all links that do not adhere to the requirements, will be deleted.

The Color Throwdown challenges are intended to be fun for everyone. We don't mind if you combine challenges, but entries must be a new creation, AND you must link back to The Color Throwdown site whether you are posting to your blog or another forum. A direct link to your card via Mr. Linky is required. [If you do not have a blog or access to an online gallery, please email us a photo of your card and we will post it here and add you to Mr. Linky.] In fairness to our generous sponsors and design team members, links that do not follow these rules will, unfortunately, be deleted and not eligible for the prize. Thank you for understanding.

Remember: One random, qualifying participant will be chosen for the blog candy prize AND another participant will be chosen as our Featured Stamper, who will then be in the running to be selected as a Guest Designer for a month!! Both will be announced next Tuesday, July 21, 2009.

Without further ado, here are your colors for this week's challenge...
