Happy 5th Anniversary to CTD

…and Happy KSS Monday! 


If you’re a fan of Color Throwdown Challenge, like I am … (and you have heard the big news yet) … they are celebrating their 5th year with CTD #250! (WOW! 5 Year!)

They are celebrating their anniversary big by giving loads of “goodies” away to those who enter their challenge … but hurry, the deadline is Tuesday, July 16th (that’s tomorrow!) – midnight Eastern Time.

Here are the colors for CTD250. To find all the details about entering and the prizes go HERE.



I had join in on the fun and here is my card.

I did not have the SU!’s current colors of: Bermuda Bay, Crumb Cake or Melon Mambo. I substituted them with their retired colors that come pretty close: Taken with Teal, Kraft and Regale Rose. I am not sure if I am going to use this card for a birthday card or as a thank you card, so I left the sentiment off.



Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you have a wonderful (and inky) week!

Check out what the KS Crew has cooked up for you today and CTD #250!
