Color Throwdown Turns 100

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Every Wednesday I visit the Color Throwdown blog and contemplate something like this:

Sometimes I take up the challenge thinking "I can handle this."  Other times, I feel like I can't possibly handle it and I slink away and wait for the next Wednesday and a new challenge.  But this week I was determined to give it a go because this week the Color Throwdown blog celebrates their 100th challenge.  That's a lot of colors!  And I wanted to participate so that everyone involved in the blog knows how much I appreciate their dedication and the time committment involved in putting something like that together week after week.  What inspiration they provide!  So I humbly present my little card using the above colors.

I referred to my little binder of sketches for this one and dragged out a Fall-To Layout 43 sketch from about a year ago.  I think the red flowers provide just the right amount of pop against the somewhat more subdued colors of regal rose, baja breeze and certainly celery.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

Smart idea to go to your binder for this color combo. I'm adding it to mine. I really had fun with it. The sketch really works.

Simpa: a binder is short for three-ring-binder. Like this:
