Color Throwdown no.308 {hello gorgeous}

I have some exciting news!! I am super happy to be joining the talents of the Color Throwdown Challenge this month. Wooohooo! I am always honored and happily surprised when I am asked to guest design. Thank-you ladies for asking me! The color combos are always fantastic and so fun to work with. 
This week is a sunny and happy combo, I think you'll like it. I sure did. I even used it on a card I posted yesterday. 


I love the trend with glasses. I was debating getting the set from MFT AND then I remembered I had a die from The Cat's Pajamas. woohoo! I was a happy girl. I cut it from some Razzle Berry cardstock and added some pretty sequins to the corners. 


I almost never mix and match stamp companies when designing a card, but today I broke that rule of mine and am so glad I did. I combined an MFT sentiment (the hello) with part of a LID sentiment to make my custom sentiment. 


Here is the Challenge graphic:



So fun....don't you think?!


I hope you'll play along with us over at Color Throwdown. Come by and be sure to check out what the team did with this week's challenge.
