Color Throwdown #70

Can you believe it's Thanksgiving already? Wow, this year flew by! Today is also another Color Throwdown color challenge. Barbara chose our colors this week and they are:



Here is my card using images by DRS Designs...



The latest release by DRS had some great Thanksgiving/Fall images to choose from. I chose to stamp the new wheat image in veramark on the solid panels and then heat embossed them with clear powder mixed with glitter. The sentiment is an older image, but the cool leaf giga image is new. Perfect for your scallop punches or any circle punch! I wanted to give the card a fall look to go with the colors so I found a couple of sticks outside and tied them to the hemp with linen thread.

I hope you will take time to visit the other CTD designers blogs...

Tammy Hershberger
Broni Holcombe
LeAnne Pugliese
Danielle Kennedy
Barbara Anders

and our guest designer for November...Elise Durenberger of Mamacow Creations.

Don't forget, we would love for you to play along with us in the challenge. You can use your closest matches on the colors. If you play, please post a direct link in Mr. Linky in the CTD post (non-direct links will be deleted). If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword, CTD70.

The wheat images look wonderful all glittery and sparkly, and I love the color blocks design. Cute idea to tie up those twigs too :)

Love the bundle of sticks! I would never have thought of that, and it's such a nice blend of rustic with elegant! Beautiful design, Cathy!
