Color Throwdown 442-Thanks for All You Do!

Before we jump into this week's challenge, the Color Throwdown team has decided to take this week's challenge to say a big Thank-you to Barbara. There is A LOT that goes on behind the scenes to keep this challenge running and Bar is a huge part of that. She keeps us organized and on track and shares so much inspiration week after week with us all. Our cards are for you this week Bar. Thanks for all you do!

 It's time for a new challenge! Barbara is our hostess this week with some gorgeous colors. Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: Kraft, yellow, gray, and aqua, you'll be good...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun! And, feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well.

I used some of the just released products from Reverse Confetti.  I love that sweet heart balloon from Take Flight. I used the matching Take Flight Confetti Cuts to cut it out and then I stamped the heart with a grey pattern from Free Spirit 6x6 paper pack and pieced it onto the balloon. 

I used Mist card stock and Mist ink with the Leaf Lattice stencil to create the subtle pattern in the back ground. I popped up a Cloud White panel with the stitched window from Hello & Thanks Label Confetti Cut. I used the same die to cut out the word "thanks" in Buttercup card stock. I finished off the sentiment with the Whole Lotta Thanks stamp set stamped in Midnight ink. I love how crisp and bold this black ink is. 

Before I go, be sure to check out with the rest of the CTD team has created with these colors. They are just yummy!
