Color Throwdown194-I Mustache You

It’s time for another Color Throwdown! This week, Barbara’s brought us a great color palette to try—Soft Sky, Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla. I made a fun masculine card using the colors and this week’s Mojo Monday sketch.

I used The Mustache Set from The Cat’s Pajamas for my card. The “punny” birthday sentiment is on the card’s large circle panel. I accented the sentiment with a felt mustache cut with the CutUps Mustaches die set—love the texture that the little bit of felt adds to the design!

The rest of the card’s pretty simple. I added Soft Sky and Poppy Parade panels to a piece of grid-patterned kraft paper, then layered the sentiment panel on top.

To play along, just create a paper crafted project using these colors as a starting point and add a direct link to your finished project using the linky tool found at the end of this week's CTD post. As always, if you don’t have exact color matches, something close works just fine. And, if you upload your project to an online gallery, use the keyword CTD194. Before you get started, here’s some inspiration from the talented Color Throwdown team and May’s guestie, Kittie Caracciolo:
