It's my turn!

To host this weeks Color Throwdown. We are at #53 already, wow! This also marks the end of our July Guest Designer Juliana...she will be missed! We loved having her and soon there will be a new Guest Designer...will it be you? Here are the colors I have chosen for this week: Rose Red, Bordering Blue, and Pirouette Pink. I based them on this adorable designer paper from Imaginisce that I used on my card.



I chose another Whipper Snapper image, one I had purchased a while ago and just finally inked up. Ain't she a cutie? After watching Crissy's wonderful watercoloring tutorial here I decided to give it a try here as well as having done it here. Check out her tutorial-it's excellent!


After coloring up this cutie with Sparkling H20's I used a Liquid Pearl dot for the flower center. The party hat paper and pink polka dot paper are both from Imaginisce. The ribbon is from PTI and all the cardstock is SU, except the one I stamped on...I used watercolor paper. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Anna Wights set Chicken's in the Kitchen and I only inked up that part...the full sentiment is Wisking you a happy birthday! The flowers are all Prima's and the large ones have frosted brads from Doodlebugs as the centers and the small one have a dot of Liquid Pearls.

Okay, now don't forget to get over to the Color Throwdown blog and check out all the awesomely talented designers! Please use keyword CTD53 if you upload to a PUBLIC gallery. Yes, public. Whew. I got it right this time...See you there!!!
