Color Throwdown #76

It's Wednesday again! Another week has flown by and it's time again for another Color Throwdown color challenge!!!

Tammy chose our pretty color combo this week and it is:



and here is my card using images by DRS Designs...


here is a shot of the inside...



I decided to make an easel card. The tutorial was on the front page of SCS last week(and might still be there!). This was a fun and relatively quick card that looks like it is very complicated. I used one of the newly released ribbon slides by DRS. This one is for thin ribbon and the other slide that was released is for wider ribbon. The other slides, you can find them here, are for your standard ribbon width. So versatile and fun!!!

This sentiment was part of the release as well. I stamped the first line on the front of the card and the rest on the inside. Some ribbon, a pearl brad and a punched border (to give the card the easel efect) finish things off.

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