Color Throwdown 487-Thanks So Berry Much

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  It's my turn as hostess this week with this fun color combination--mint, red, and pink.  I paired the colors with the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch for this fruit themed thank you design.

Thanks So Berry Much card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Reverse Confetti
For my focal panel, I die cut a pair of strawberries using Reverse Confetti's Berry Sweet dies and scraps of mint and red cardstock.  On one of the berries, I stamped the seed image from the coordinating stamp set.  A thank you sentiment was stamped on the other.  I used foam tape to adhere the berries to a pink card base edged with narrow strips of red and mint cardstock.  

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 CTD487.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd487 and #colorthrowdown.  You can find us on Instagram (and on Facebuook!) with the username colorthrowdown. 

Before you get started, here’s some inspiration from the talented Color Throwdown team and our April guestie Hannelie Bester.
