Color Throwdown 333-Not to Get Carried Away

It's time for another Color Throwdown! Monika is our hostess this week and she's chosen this soft, pretty color combination--lilac, light lilac, green, and cream.

Not to Get Carried Away card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from WPlus9
Originally, I was thinking about putting together a floral design, but the adorable WPlus9 Unforgettable set arrived in my mailbox and changed all that!  I paired the set with this week's color palette and the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.  I colored up the elephant and balloon with Copic markers and used foam tape to adhere them to a purple cardstock panel.  The sentiment was stamped just beneath the elephant in darker purple ink.  After matting the panel on green cardstock, I adhered it to a crisp white card base. I tucked a trio of purple fishtail flag strips beneath the right edge of the panel to finish the design.

 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. Just be sure that the challenge colors are the dominant ones in your project. And, if you upload your project to an online gallery, use the keyword CTD333.

Before you get started, here’s some inspiration from the talented Color Throwdown team, our March guestie, Holly Brown, and this week’s guest star stamper, Betty Wright.
