Wednesday’s Color Throwdown

swatch 189

It’s another Color Throwdown and this week our hostess with the mostess is Kristin.  A very bold palette she has for us too!

I used digital paper from My Time Made Easy created by the very same Kristin!  It’s from the Tapestry Trends paper pack.  I love the bold fun print and happy colors.

The bird is a die from Sizzix called Bird and Vine.  I cut it out three times layering the blue bird, embossed with a Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder, over the green and adding the red flowers.   I placed a doily under the bird and added Kaiser pearls to the flowers and scalloped border. 

Please visit the ladies below to see their beautiful creations!

Broni ~ Barbara ~ Tammy ~ Lori ~ Wanda ~ Joan ~ Lynn ~ Kerri ~ and our April Guest Designer Julia Aston

I hope you will join us this week for this fun color challenge.  Get all the details at the Color Throwdown!  

Have a great day!
