Color Throwdown 690-We'll Weather This Together

It's time for another Color Throwdown! Wanda is our hostess this week with a mix of colors from a graphic pillow--navy, mustard, and gray.

We'll Weather This Together card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn
I paired the colors with a somewhat loose interpretation of the current sketch challenge at The Paper Players for this encouraging card. The layout's three squares are represented by the mustard die cut sun and the pair of gray die cut clouds created with Lawn Fawn's Spring Showers die set. I stamped the "we'll weather this together" sentiment from LF's Better Together stamp set on the left side of the cardfront, just to the left of the cluster of images. I adhered the panel to a coordinating mustard card base. A trio of silver sequin raindrops positioned in a triangle beneath the clouds completed 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 CTD690.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd690 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 and this week's Guest Star Stamper Rachael Merrick.
