Color Throwdown 503-Thanks So Berry Much

It's time for another Color Throwdown!  Broni is our hostess this week with this color combination inspired by a beautiful outdoor space--red, green, and gray.

Thanks So Berry Much card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from WPlus9
I used the colors to create a summery thank you card based on the current sketch at CAS(e) this Sketch.  I stamped a trio of small red berries from WPlus9's Fresh Picked stamp set on a white panel, leaving space for the sentiment in the middle.  The sentiment was stamped in white ink on a narrow gray cardstock strip, then heat embossed in white.  I used foam tape to adhere the sentiment to the white panel among the berries. The finished panel was adhered to a green 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 CTD503.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd503 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 July Guestie Kathy Schweinfurth, and this week's Guest Star Stamper, Theresa Pollack.
