When I first saw this week's Color Throwdown CTD242 colors, I was not so sure they would work together. I decided to do some speech bubbles, as I have seen a lot of this around lately, and I am very pleased with the way the card came together. I guess this is the benefit of a color challenge--otherwise I would probably make everything pink and orange or blue and green. I used my Lawn Fawn speech bubble dies and a selection of sentiments from Paper Smooches Chit Chat to make a card to encourage a friend.
My next card is a very exciting milestone for me--the first time I have ever played with The Paper Players. I had never heard of this challenge, and then saw two cards yesterday on some blogs that I follow with this awesome color scheme, and decided to play along myself. I will definitely play again. I just love this pencil image--from Happy Trails, and who doesn't need some extra thank you cards at the end of the school year.
