I'm back with the Color Throwdown #40

I had a long busy weekend and I'm still bushed, but it was wonderful! My new HD 20" flat panel monitor is due to arrive on Friday so I can do some serious photo editing and then hope to share some of my pictures with you.

This weeks lovely colors for the Color Throwdown are brought to us by our very own idol Barbara!


This cute bird is from the new set Tweet-ies from CC Designs at All That Scraps. Don't you just love the eyelashes on these birds?! Colored with Copics and cut out and matted with Nesties. The Ocean Mist ribbon from PTI matches the Sage Shadow cardstock perfectly! I just added a bow with a brad and some Dew Drops. There is some sparkle there too from a Sakura Stardust pen...but of course you can't see that!

Make sure you check out all the great samples this week and please play along. If you upload to a public gallery make sure you use CTD40 for your keyword.

Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits
Broni Holcomb - Splashes of Watercolor

Sorry it's going to be a slow week. I have so much to catch up on after being gone for several days so I haven't had time to make any other cards. Have a happy Wednesday!
