Color Throwdown 512/ Truly Grateful

Hi, everyone! It's time for a new challenge! Barbara is here with our colors for this week. Remember, we're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown: green, aqua/turquoise, and gray 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. 

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD512and please use #ctd512 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. Importantly, though, no digital designsonly digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up. 

I still have all the stamps from the latest Reverse Confetti release on my desk, so I pulled a bunch of them together for today's card. I started with the Cotton &Thistles stamp set. I colored the images up with my copic markers and then stamped the jar a second time onto vellum card stock. I used the Cotton & Thistles Confetti Cuts to cut out the images. I love the realistic look the vellum gives to the jar. I stamped a few of the leaf images from Fall Foliage and then colored them in the challenge colors with my Copic markers. 

The background is the cool new Criss Cross Cover Panel Confetti Cut in Stormy card stock. I added the sentiment from Fall Foliage along the bottom. I wanted the bottom of my card striped in olive, so I sponged Olive ink onto Premium Polar White card stock to create the perfect color I was looking for.
