Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

swatch 135 updated

The Color Throwdown is back with a wonderful color challenge for you!  This lovely combination is from our hostess Barbara

I found this fun patterned paper from Sandylion in my stash to get my project started.

I used Papertrey Ink new stamp set Mat Stack 4 Collection and Mat Stack 4 die to cut the image.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to create a double layer butterfly, one of vellum and one with yellow cardstock. I used some Kaiser pearls in black on the body.  I used a black Gelly Roll pen to make dots around the sentiment circle which was cut with a Spellbinders Classic Circle die.  I used this beautiful gingham ribbon in red and cream and added a bow.  Very simple card. 

The design team has some fabulous projects to share so make sure you check each of them out!

Then get over to the Color Throwdown and enter your own!  Have a great day!
