Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

swatch 166

Hi everyone! I am hosting this weeks Color Throwdown and I picked my color scheme from the MME Lost and Found line paper pad called Breeze. I love the vintagy collage like papers in this pad.

My husbands birthday is tomorrow I made him a card using the PTI set Enjoy the Ride.

DPK_CTD166

I die cut the car from patterned paper and cut out the window. I applied a piece of vellum to the back to make it appear to be glass. I found some rain dots too that I’ve had forever and they were perfect little headlights. A little twine and a button…very simple.

We have a new Guest Designer for month of November and we also have added another new team member. Please give a warm welcome to the newest CTD girl…Kerri Michaud. The team has so many wonderful samples to share today so head on over the check them out!
