Color Throwdown #335

Happy Saturday, everyone!  I'm up before the rest of the house, which is typical. . .I can't sleep in anymore.  The nice thing about is that I have some time to wake up and catch up on blog reading and coffee drinking ;)

I have a couple of cards to show this morning that follow the Color Throwdown color challenge.  The colors were muted red, light green, and light yellow.  I have no idea which manufacturer the cardstock is from, because I just grabbed it from my stash.  The white paper is used, however, is Confetti White from Papertrey Ink.  The image is from PTI as well, and it is called The Sweet Life, and the sentiment is from the Signature Greetings II set.  The background uses the Dotted Lattice embossing folder from Taylored Expressions.

I ended up loving the colors together so much that I made another card.  Coffee. . .I love a good coffee set. . .and some coffee ;)

The background uses a couple of different stencil that I have, with some ink blotted through them.  The image is another PTI image called Warm Happiness, and it uses the matching die as well.  I decided to throw on some burlap and staple the panel for interest and texture.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I need that coffee one! I actually need to buy a bunch of cards. Is that even possible anymore? Good morning. I'm up, too, and my nephew. He's mostly a morning person like me. His mom, though, could be a professional sleeper. :)

  2. LOVE both of them!! The textures are wonderful!! So glad you joined us at CTD!!

  3. Fantastic cards Cassie. Love the gorgeous roses on the first one with the dry embossed background. The coffee cup looks awesome on the second card. Also like the burlap piece. Nice texture. Thank you for joining us at The Color Throwdown.
