…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 joined 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!
