Color Throwdown 700-Thanks

It's time for another Color Throwdown! This is a big milestone for the Color Throwdown, as this week marks our 700th challenge! We appreciate all of you who continue to join us each week and share your challenge creations. Wanda is our hostess this week with a warm and toasty mix of colors--yellow, orange, kraft, and brown.

Thanks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-dies from Lawn Fawn
I paired the colors with the current challenge at Sunday Stamps. A pair of leaves die cut with Lawn Fawn's Stitched Leaves dies represent the layout's focal image panel. To add interest and depth to the die cuts, I inked them with distress oxides. The die cuts were adhered to an orange patterned paper panel featuring leaves and other nature themed images. I die cut LF's Thanks Line Border from gold foil cardstock and added that along the very bottom of the patterned panel, tucking the narrow line piece beneath the raised leaves. The panel was matted on chocolate brown cardstock, then adhered to a kraft 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 CTD700.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd700 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 Hermien Vaessen.
