Hi there! It's time for the Color Throwdown Challenge #180!
Lori is our hostess this week and she's chosen some great colors and a cool inspiration photo for all of us to create with.
For my card I went with a CAS (clean and simple) look to create a more masculine card using the Papertrey Ink stamp set Think Big Favorites #12 and Background Basics Houndstooth. I started out with a basic grey card base, then a panel of white cardstock. After that I stamped a row of the houndstooth border along the bottom of a piece of bashful blue cardstock and added a strip of barley banana through the center. I used the Stampin' Up Top Note die to stamp my sentiment on and trimmed it down so only a portion of it would show and added that to the center of my card. I die cut some My Mind's Eye designer paper using the PTI banner dies and added those along the top and to finish off my card I added some ribbon, punched out stars and buttons with twine.
