Color Throwdown 100

Hello and a very happy Wednesday to you! Today the CTD is celebrating 100 color challenges with a blog hop and a huge giveaway of some sensational prizes! As a former guest designer, I've been asked to participate in this amazing challenge and of course I couldn't say no! Stay tuned and be sure to read the details below, but first things first - here are the colors for this week's color challenge.


I started my card by using Baja Breeze for the base and adding a layer of Certainly Celery for a mat underneath the Certainly Celery DP background. I cut 3 larger squares of Regal Rose, 1 larger square of Real Red, and 4 smaller squares of Baja Breeze. The squares with pink primas have clear gemstone brads, while the red prima has a red gemstone brad. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink using a G Studio stamp and the ribbon is Regal Rose grosgrain by SU!.

Now for the exciting details!! There is going to be a HUGE giveaway of over $1600 in prizes for playing along with the CTD100!! Everyone has a chance to win a great prize by doing the following.

Play along with the CTD100 by using the above colors and creating a card. Use any stamps or supplies you want. If you don't have the exact colors, use something similar.

Link your card on the CTD blog HERE by using the Inlinx tool at the bottom of the post. Use only a direct link to your card, as those who don't will be disqualified.

Visit each of the designers listed below and leave them some love. The more you comment, the better your chances of winning, but please just one comment per blog!
