Color Throwdown 435-Flying By with a Birthday Hi

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Jodi is our hostess this week and she's brought us a fun color mix--orange, turquoise, and yellow.  I used the colors for a simple birthday design based on the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.

Flying By with a Birthday Hi card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Taylored ExpressionsMy focal image is a dragon from the Taylored Expressions Magical Day stamp set. After coloring the image with Copic markers, I cut it out with the matching die.  I used foam tape to perch it over a pair of clouds cut from shimmery white cardstock.  The set's "flying by with a birthday hi" sentiment was stamped beneath the dragon and clouds in black ink.  I added a trio of shimmery turquoise sequins around the clouds 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 CTD435. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd435 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 March guestie, Lisa Lara, and this week's guest star stamper, Tara Chaussee.
