Fashionably Late?

swatch 194

Hello fellow bloggers!  Welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown.  This week is challenge 194 and these soothing lovely summer colors are brought to us by Barbara!

I started with a Vanilla base and paper from the Bo Bunny Gabrielle paper pad.  Then I matted that with Poppy Parade.

I used the Caged Bird Die from Tim Holtz Alterations collection and made the cage Crumb Cake and the bird Soft Sky.  I inked around the images with Versa Magic Dew Drops in corresponding colors to give the die cuts some depth. 


The sentiment is from Tag Lines by Flourishes and I stamped it on Vanilla card stock and hand cut the banner.  I used Kaiser pearls on the bottom of the cage and Prima red roses to finish it off.

Please visit the design team ladies below for lots of eye candy!  And then go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on the challenge and join in the fun!
