Color Throwdown 408-Just a Note

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Lynn's our hostess this week and she's sharing a classic color combination that's reminiscent of school days-red, yellow, green, and blue.

Just a Note card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs
The layout for my card is based on the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.  It came together quickly with a bunch of bold envelopes die cut with one of the Special Delivery Accents dies from SugarPea Designs.  To bring in a bit of sparkle, I backed each envelope's open heart with a scrap of silver cardstock before adhering the envelope to a white panel using foam tape.  I stamped the "just a note" sentiment from the Special Delivery set in the open space, then accented it with a tiny red heart.  The finished panel was adhered to a blue card base.

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 CTD408. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd408 and #colorthrowdown. You can find us on Instagram (and on Facebook!) with the username colorthrowdown. 

Before you get started, here’s some inspiration from the talented Color Throwdown team, our August guestie, Wanda Guess, and this week's guest star stamper, Agnieszka Danek-Wisniak.
