Color Throwdown #347- Happy Summer!!

Good Morning and Happy Happy Hump Day!! I'm here bringing you this week's Color Throwdown Colors brought to us by my sweet friend Broni.

Love this room.... reminds me of a beach house bedroom (beach is on my mind this time of year)

Here's my card...

Now I have to say for such a CAS card.... I struggled. The reason for that was I started out with my watercolored background using MFT MPD Scallop stencil and then I was wanting to watercolor an image for that lower left corner. Love all the watercolor images out in card blog land and wanting to practice but.... every image turned out bad, real bad- ever have those days? My blue looks a little more blue than turquoise in the image- I may have used to much paint. The sentiment is from Lil Inkers.

So yesterday when I saw the current Curtain Call Challenge for flip flops and knowing Broni was hosting this week..... I used the new Flip Flop dies from Top Dog Dies!! Broni is the expert on flip flops- she doesn't just love them and wear them all the time... she knows the brands... has tried them all... knows which ones might be tougher between the toes..... and flip flops in winter- no problem!!


Once you’ve finished your card or other paper-crafted project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD347 if you upload your project to an online gallery, or hashtag on social media with #ctd345 and/or #colorthrowdown.  Challenge guidelines are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

Sweet flip flop card and perfect for both challenges! one has had more epic fail watercoloring tries than I've had! They make it look so easy on videos, but I'm all thumbs!
