Color Throwdown 745-You're the Zest

It's time for another Color Throwdown! Susie is our hostess this week with a great color combination--yellow, green, and white.

You're the Zest card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Lawn Fawn
I paired the colors with the current challenge from The Paper Players for a lemon themed thank you card. My focal image is a pair of lemons stamped with the image from Lawn Fawn's You're the Zest stamp set. I colored the images with Copic markers and carefully cut them out by hand. The lemons were adhered to a green strip using foam tape for dimension. I added the strip to a white card base with a lemony yellow panel dressed up with a strip of yellow patterned paper with diagonal stripes. The patterned panel was matted on green cardstock to set it off from the yellow background and tie it together with the background for the lemons. The set's "you're the zest" sentiment was stamped to the right of the lemon duo 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 CTD745.  If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd745 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.
