Color Throwdown Challenge






Wow! I didn't realize that a week went by without me posting something. I found a new color challenge blog (always on the lookout for those so let me know if you have another fun one). This one is a blog called Color Throwdown. The kids were playing fairly well so I had some time to play. I don't have the exact colors in the challenge, but the girls over there are so kind to let us use what we have :0) This card is a mixture of stamp sets: Celebrate Life (butterfly), Playful Flourishes and For Every Occasion. I figure if I have the sets it's ok to mix and match, right?

This card sort of evolved. I don't like plain cardstock so I stamped a flower on the blue background and I also stamped the butterfly on the yellow pattern paper. I think if you click to make the picture bigger you'll be able to see it. I also love texture so I added some by sponging white around the blue and Autumn Terracotta around the Buttercup piece. This type of card just needed glitter. I'll probably be still wearing it on my date with DH tonight :0) I added the last touch by punching flowers and scattering them around and dotting the centers with a white gel pen (can't live without one of those). Oh, I also distressed the edges of the card and message piece with scissors. Anyway, I hope you like it. It wasn't colors that I'd normally see together, but that's why it's called a challenge :0)

Gotta' run get supper for the kids so they can get to VBS. I love summertime!

Heartfelt Hugs,
Jo
