Color Throwdown Wednesday


Hi everyone! I have a late entry to the Color Throwdown today...I waited until the last minute to make my card then realized that I had a dentist appointment last night and when I came home all numb and drooling it wasn't really conducive to making one. So I whipped this up this afternoon since I am home with a little sickie. Although he's been bouncing off the the walls for a few hours now so I think he's feeling better!


This lovely color combo is brought to us today by LeAnne! Here is used an image from Magenta that I purchase in the fall at a stamp show that took place locally. It was the first time I ever got to see Magenta stamps at one of these shows and it was fantastic because I just love their images! I met and spoke with owner/artist Nathalie Metivier and she is so sweet, not to mention talented!

I stamped the image in white pigment ink and embossed with white ep on Mellow Moss paper. I added a flat backed pearl in each corner. The Razzleberry layer was punched with a Martha Stewart set. I weaved a PTI ribbon through the scallops across the top and finished with a button I bought at Jo-Anns.

Come visit us at the Color Throwdown to see all the designers samples and play along!
