Color Throwdown 792-Thanks a Latte

It's time for another Color Throwdown! Kelly is our hostess this week with a pretty mix of colors--blue, kraft, and cream.

Thanks a Latte card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs
I paired the colors with the current challenge at Sunday Stamps. My focal image is a die cut to go coffee cup cut from cream and kraft cardstock using dies from SugarPea Designs. I arranged the pieces on a kraft panel using foam tape for dimension. I angled the panel before setting it over a cream panel centered on a blue card base. Now that I look at it again, I probably should have cut the kraft panel with some type of stitched or dotted die to add interest... I tucked a layered fishtail flag strip made from blue and kraft die cut pieces between the kraft and cream panels, then added the "thanks a latte" sentiment from the SPD Espresso Your self stamp set to the lower right corner of the kraft panel to finish the card.

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 CTD792. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd792 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.
