It's My Turn...


To host this weeks Color Throwdown and we are up to #41. My color choice this week was inspired by The Green Stack from Die Cuts with a View. I LOVE that paper! This was a really fun card to make.


I used SU Under the Stars. All images are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar Crest Ultra Smooth white cardstock and colored with Copics. Most are popped up with dimensional dots. I created the grass with decorative edge scissors and cut down between the "blades" and pulled some forward. The balloon are a Martha Stewart punch and I used some black wild wire for their string. The Happy Birthday sentiment and the candle on the s'more are from Studio G clear sets from Michaels. I added some sparkle to the flame and around it with a Sakura Stardust pen.

I hope you join in the Throwdown and show us your cards this week. Please use CTD41 as a keyword if you upload to a public gallery and use Mr. Linky on the CTD post here.

Check out all the wonderful cards from the team for more inspiration!
