Freshly Made Sketches 94 and a PARTY!!

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Today I've got a special card to share.  First, Linda Suarez is our sketch hostess at Freshly Made Sketches and she's designed a beauty for us!  I love designs like this because they can be jazzed up with colors, layers, embellishments, stamps and whatever else strikes your fancy!

And today I am also participating in a very special party at Color Throwdown.  Today is their 250th color challenge! Can you believe it?  Five years of amazing color challenges and even more amazing creations from the design team and challenge participants as well!



To help kick off this party all alumni design team members and former guest designers were invited to play along.  I was a guest designer over there back in May 2011 so I am lucky to be part of this amazing event!  There are prizes galore so you definitely don't want to miss this party!   Make a project with these gorgeous and fun summer colors and link up to the gallery for your chance to win.  Head on over to Color Throwdown to get all the details!  Woo Hoo!!

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Beautiful Blooms II (Papertrey Ink); So Happy For You (SU)
Accessories:  Stitched Mats Rectangle die (Lil' Inker Designs); So Saffron button (SU), washi tape, crochet thread
