Color Throwdown




Loved the warm colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! I chose some new DP by BasicGrey to pull them all together and used Roxie's layout from SCS's Sketch Challenge to create this floral card. The flowers were stamped, cut out, popped with dimensionals and highlighted with copper Stickles. Had to initiate my new MS border punch...love the new look it gives! Thanks for stopping by and commenting...I enjoy each and every one!

STAMPS: One Person (flower) & Blessings (sentiment) - both by Verve
PAPER: Max & Whiskers DP (BasicGrey), White
INK: Memento Rich Cocoa
ACCESSORIES: MS Optic Dot border punch, Copper Stickles
