Color Throwdown 798-Have a Berry Happy Birthday

It's time for another Color Throwdown! Lynn is our hostess with a great mix of colors--red, blue, and green.

Berry Happy Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn
I needed to make a birthday card for one of our school's secretaries and I knew these colors would be perfect for a berry themed birthday card. The layout for my design comes from the current challenge at TGIF Challenges. It was perfect for the cluster of bright red strawberries made with Lawn Fawn's Strawberry Patch dies. After I die cut the leafy branch, it was adhered directly to a blue cardstock panel, then dotted with the berries. For interest, I used foam tape to place the berries. I die cut a fishtail flag strip from green cardstock to use for the sentiment. The green contrasts nicely with the blue background panel. I stamped the "have a berry happy birthday" sentiment from LF's Berry Special stamp set on the strip in slightly darker green ink, then added it to the panel, tucking one end beneath a raised berry die cut. The finished panel was adhered to an easy to write on white 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 CTD798. If you upload your projects on social media, go ahead and use the hashtag #ctd798 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.
