Color Throwdown Challenge #76

Welcome to another Color Throwdown Challenge. This week is hosted by Tammy with these gorgeous colors:

swatch 76

I know I’m a bit late but I’ve been busy with a new release and there’s those kids and husband that like me to take care of them, and that job…really cuts into my stamping time!



I just received my new PTI stamps today and I couldn't wait to use them! This cupcake is from Baby Button Bits. I used this pretty pp from the Pretty Pastels collection for both paper piecing and as the background. I also popped up the cupcake top and leaves. It's topped with a button also from PTI. I used Nesties for the image and scallop mat and a corner punch that I am not sure of the maker. I added a bit of lace and some tiny flat backed pearls to finish off this sweet little card.

Make sure you check all the wonderful samples this week from our talented designers and play along with us!!
