Colour Throwdown 424 & Seasons Givings Blog Hop Winners

As I shared last month, I'm very excited to have been invited
to guest design for Colour Throwdown for December and January!

Here's this week's CTD:

I was inspired to use my Reverse Confetti Blooms 'n Buds to make my card.

I diecut flowers and leaves from Lime Green CardstockIced Aqua Cardstock,
Tangerine CardstockGrape Soda Cardstock and Brick Cardstock

I then stamped them with coordinating Blooms 'n Buds stamps in Lime Green Ink,
Iced Aqua InkTangerine InkGrape Soda InkRC Aqua InkBrick Ink & Avocado Ink.

I adhered them to a black cardstock background, onto which I stamped
the sentiments from Whole Lotta Thanks & You're So in versamark

and heat embossed them in white.



Make sure that you visit Colour Throwdown
to see what the other DT members created with this week's colour challenge!
