Color Throwdown #124

Good Wednesday morning to you all! It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge! Are you ready? It's Broni here as your hostess this week. Let's get right to the color combo of the week:
Now we'd also like to invite you to do a little more with the challenge this week. Please read on~

Today's challenge also has a special twist. A few weeks ago, one of our team members read a thread on Splitcoaststampers about a fellow Stamping Sister who is very sick. Katie Renz lives in Washington state, is a wife and mother of three and was diagnosed just before Christmas with stage 4 gastric cancer. The members of the Throwdown team felt the need to rally around Katie and show her our support, so we are asking everyone to create their cards today to send to Katie! The mailing address for Katie is...

Katie Renz

PO Box 5913

Bellingham, WA 98227-5913

To further inspire you, we're offering some prizes! Several members of the Throwdown team are chipping in some prizes, as is Kate from i {heart} papers! We'll draw random winners from everyone who makes a card for Katie and provides a direct link to their card using the McLinky widget below by 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, January 16th. THANK YOU for joining us in showing support to Katie!

Wonderful idea to send this week's challenge cards to Katie! The more love for her, the better! Beautiful color combo and great samples!

Colour combination itself was a challenge :) I had nothing, nothing similar at all, but then I decided to design my own paper for this challenge. It was good fun.

See you next time :)
