Color Throwdown Challenge #264: Thinking of You

Hi Everyone,

I am so super excited to have been asked to be the guest designer for the Color Throwdown challenge for the month of October!!!  Every Wednesday a different color combo with an inspiration photo is given and you create any project that combines those colors in any way you want! Even if you don't have exactly the right colors - its totally fine - just jump on it and play along! So that's what I did for today's challenge - I love that awesome jacket in the inspiration picture - isn't it sooo cool (and those shoes! yes!)

For my attempt at the card - I used the sweet Birds of a Feather stamp set and stamped the sweet bird cage in Night of Navy ink from SU! and the Calypso Coral ink for the sweet birdie and the attached the image to the mats of the different blue colors. I didn't have SU! papers but used somewhat similar colors papers I had that were the closest. I love this silver paper that was from a dear friend and adds a fun texture to the card. 

Card Ingredients:
Stamps: Birds of a Feather from Taylored Expressions
Inks: SU! Coral and Night of Navy
Papers: Bazzill cardstock
Accessories: Best Glue Ever, Pennant Border die, bling, ribbon, circle punch, twine, dimensionals

I added some bling, pennants and some ribbon to the side along with a hanging sentiment: "Thinking of You". I love how this turned out and one of the best parts of playing along with this challenge is getting to play with colors that you normally wouldn't play with and to see how everyone else played along with the challenge and seeing the magic they created with these colors - so much fun! :)

Hope you have a chance to play along! Please hop by the Color Throwdown challenge to check out all the awesome creations by the CTD dt!! 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Sankari :)
