Happy Birthday, Color Throwdown!!

Happy 5th Birthday, Color Throwdown!

I’m excited to be joining in as they celebrate 5 years of sharing color challenges.  That’s right … FIVE years!  It was my pleasure to be a Guest Designer with the Color Throwdown in March, 2012.



You’re always invited to participate in each week’s Color Throwdown Challenge, but this week participants will have a chance to win some amazing prizes!   Here are this week’s colors to help get you started.






For my project, I opted to try something ‘other than’ a card.  Then I realized that I haven’t played with my Sizzix eClips in a while, and the rest was simply a matter of deciding my color order and selecting stamps, etc.

Color Throwdown’s cyber birthday party seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out a new-to-me SVG file.   Originally I toyed with the idea of using no stamps at all, but it’s been such a long, long time since I’ve used one of my old favorite backgrounds that I just indulged myself and brought out my SU Linen stamp to add the look of some subtle to my purse.  Flower layers were cut with a Sizzix sizzlet and my trusty Big Shot.






**I hope you’ll treat yourself to more Color Throwdown inspiration today!   There’s a fabulous, long list of prizes available, and a complete list of the Color Throwdown Designers and Guest Designers who are blogging & sharing their creations.   Some incredibly talented stampers have been busy creating so we can all join together to splash these fun colors across the stampy blogosphere today.  Enjoy!
