Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

swatch 160
Hey everyone, welcome to another Color Throwdown challenge! I am your hostess and this week my color inspiration came from the Blush paper pad from the Lost and Found line by MME.
I love this color combo…so rich, so sweet! I finally got my Button Boutique stamps from PTI inky.

I stamped the button background with Dark Chocolate Palette ink from PTI. I used different patterned papers to die cut the buttons using Buttoned Up 1 and Buttoned Up 2 coordinating dies. Very simple tea dyed twill, a doily, and a stick pin finish it up. The pretty patterned paper with the sweet chickadee’s is almost an embellishment in itself.

These lovely ladies of the Color Throwdown have luscious samples to share to help inspire your creation so stop by their blogs and say hello!

Ok girly, you just inspired me. I love the MME papers and cute PTI button card. I have that set and dies, but have never used the cute little button dies. TFS. :)
