Celebrating with the Color Throwdown #100

Today is a FUN FUN day for those of us in rubber stamping, cardmaking blogland, as it is the COLOR THROWDOWN #100 CELEBRATION!!!

To celebrate this special occasion, we are having a BLOG HOP with all the past CTD Guest Designers.  You can color me EXCITED to participate!  :D


First, I'll show you the card I created
with this unique color combination.


This is a 5-1/4" square card with Baja Breeze as the base cardstock.  I've used the linen background stamp (retired) and the *new* Crumbcake ink pad to distress.  The stamp set is Watercolor Trio, a very beautiful and versatile set now available in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog. 

--this photo shows the inside of my card.
