My Final CTD Guest Designer Spot

Today marks my final day as a guest designer for the Color Throwdown for the month of October, and it has been a blast! This week, the colors were a REAL challenge for me!Would you have put these colors together if it weren't for a challenge? I wouldn't, but I guess that's the challenge! I kind of liked it in the end, too! Here's what I did with them. I used a new stamp from Paper Makeup Stamps. It's from the Moody Girl line, and this one is called Moody for Snow. (The sentiment is from the Snow Happy set also by PMS.) I colored her with copic markers in the challenge colors and added star dust stickles to the snowflakes and her clothing. The bordering blue and elegant eggplant rectangles were run through the cuttlebug with a snowflake folder. The background dp is from SU's Razzleberry Lemonade. The satin ribbon is one I picked up at AC Moore that matched the rich razzleberry perfectly. The snowflake is something I had in my stash from last year. I used this week's Mojo sketch, which was also a challenge for me! I'm really challenging myself today! LOL!!

If you'd like to try this challenge, post your direct link to the CTD blog and use the keyword CTD66 if you post to any online gallery. I know the girls have some fabulous designs for you to get your creative juices flowing, so make sure you stop by there and leave them some love!

I'd like to thank the girls at the Color Throwdown for inviting me to be their guest designer this month. It was truly an honor to be part of their team!

Thanks for stopping in today!
