color throwdown 100th challenge celebration!

Welcome to the 100th Color Throwdown Celebration!  I was so pleased when the girls asked me to play along with them for their big celebration.  Today if you visit all the blogs (see the list below) you have the chance to win some amazing prizes that have been donated  by various companies.  My prize that I will be choosing a random winner for will be a $25 gift certificate from

You need to have commented on my blog before midnight on July 12th EST to qualify for the prize.  You also need to play along with the challenge to use Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Real Red and Baja Breeze on a project and put a direct link in Mr Linky over on the Color Throwdown blog.  Now if you don't have the exact colors don't worry, just use the closest you have.

On my card I used Our Daily Bread Designs; Scripture Series 1 stamps set.  The verses in this set where selected from various verses submit by members of SplitCoastStampers that Kelley, the owner of ODBD, then made into this fabulous stamp set.  I went for simple on my card because I wanted the verse to shine through and I found that I had a bit of this lovely designer paper from Basic Grey Lemonade in my stash that had exactly the colors I was looking for, in it.

Make sure you have left a comment below then hop over and visit my Color Throwdown friends to see what loveliness they have created for your viewing.
