Wednesday’s Color Throwdown and some news

Hi everyone and welcome to Color Throwdown #198.  This weeks challenge is being hosted by Kerri and sweet colors they are!

Today I am also announcing that this will be my last post as a design team member for the Color Throwdown.  I started in January 2009 and have been privileged to be part of the team for more than 3 years.  But the time has come for change and I had to make the difficult decision to step down and make some much needed time in my life for other ventures.  It’s been a wild ride and I will miss my team mates dearly, but they really won’t get rid of me that easily!   I’m not leaving blogland!

Ok, now for my card this week.

I stamped this sweet image from Stamping Bella an Uptown Girl called Flora the Cyclist on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored it with Copics and shaded with Prismacolor pencil and oms.

The paper is from the MME 6x6 pad On The Bright Side.   The sentiment is included with the image and I just added a simple Prima flower with a button to dress it up a bit.  It’s a very large card, finished size is 51/2 by 5 1/2 because the image is large.  I love these sweet Uptown Girls!

Now wrap your brains around these colors and get your entry uploaded to the Color Throwdown blog so we can ooh and ahh over your creations!

And thank you to Anna Wight for guest designing with us this month!  The pleasure has been all ours!

Check out the ladies below for an eyeful of  inspiration!

Well, whew....glad to hear you're not leaving blog land. I totally understand what a hard decision it must have been to step down from the CTD, but again, so glad to hear you'll still be crafting and posting! Your card today is so pretty...I love what you did with the colors and the coloring on the dress is stunning!

So extremely cute, Danielle! And very fitting sentiment considering your news. Seems a lot of stampers are moving on or making changes of some sort. I'm so much more relaxed now that I've changed my blogging ways. BTW, I love it when you stamp and color up cute stuff like this. Enjoy your summer with the kids!
