Color Throwdown!

Welcome to day one of the Color Throwdown!

What's the Color Throwdown?

A small group of card makers/designers got together and
decided to have a weekly color challenge blog and call it a Color Throwdown,
and we've got a great color combo for you!

The Card.
The Colors. Are they not beautiful?
I hope you join us and play along! We'd love to see your creations!
Post a link in the comments here, and if you upload to Splitcoast use the keyword CTD1.


Check out the rest of the crew.
The Throwdown Girls!



The details: After I created the card, I found this sketch on Our Creative Corner. Ha! Lucky me.....I did two challenges at once! Now that takes skill or maybe I was just lucky!Obviously I used Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, and Sage Shadow. I was thrilled to be able to use this Verve Visual set , Petals and Stems, that I've hardly had a chance to play with....I think it fit the colors and card perfectly! I cut out the butterflies (those butterflies seem to be popping up everywhere---and now I just need that Martha Stewart punch!) I also popped up the flower centers and covered them with Diamond Stickles. I tied just a bit of sheer ribbon on and used a little rub-on for the sentiment!

Gorgeous! Loving the color combo! I like how you popped up the butterflies and did the stickles on the flowers.

I have to pack up the last of my stamp room today. :-( We start moving tomorrow. In a couple weeks once we get settled in, I hope to join you ladies for the CT challenges. If this first one is any indication, it's not-to-be-missed!
