Color Throwdown 390-Great Year

Hello, Color Throwdown fans!  Wanda is our hostess this week and my Michigan loving heart sure adored her color choices this week! Yay, Go Blue!

The end of the school year is quickly approaching and I want to make sure I am ready for all the teachers. I used this week's colors to make this thank-you card. I loved combing the apples and stars for a teacher themed card.

I started this one with some clear embossing of the So Many Stars border. I stamped it three times with Versamark and then clear embossed it.

 Once that cooled, I smooshed on some  Mustard Seed distress ink and gave my back ground a quick color wash. I let that dry and stamped my All Apples pieces and then cut them out with the All Apples Confetti Cut. I then cut some You Are Amazing Confetti Cut stars with Blueberry card stock. I then tucked in a strip of diagonal striped paper and added some pretty yellow sequins. 

For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! And don't forget to join us over on the CTD Blog. We can't wait to see what you create with these new colors.
