Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

swatch 159

No really, can you handle this? What was our hostess, Carole, thinking?! Most definitely a challenge for me anyway!

I am not fond of Pacific Point and I just couldn’t seem to find any patterned paper to use with it. I finally pulled out a piece of Crate Paper (that I hoard!) with a soft blue and red floral.


I pulled out my new Spellbinders butterfly dies called Wonderful Wings. I used a piece of patterned paper from the Rosy pad by MME for the butterfly base. The butterfly is layered on top of die cuts from Labels Sixteen and Fleur De Lis. I also used a Nested Pennants die for the sentiment which is from a PTI set. I squeezed in the obligatory Pacific Point with some ribbon (love you anyway Carole!) I made some antennae with black wire and a body for the butterfly with Kaiser adhesive pearls.

Okay, now it’s your turn! Lets see what YOU can do with these colors! Head on over to the Color Throwdown blog and link up your creation to this weeks challenge. You can visit the ladies below for lots of inspiration!
