Celebration Time is Just Around the Corner!



It's almost here...CTD's celebration of their 100th challenge! You won't want to miss the LONG list of companies who are generously donating prizes!! Check out the Color Throwdown Blog for details and mark your calendar now for July 7! I am sad to see my month as guest designer is nearing the end. The time has passed by so quickly and it's been a lot of fun...but I'll still be playing in the weekly challenges! I LOVE this week's colors: Cream, Turquoise, & Chocolate. I used papers from Webster's Pages triple pack collection. The turquoise is a more muted shade but thought it would work. The flower is PTI's Blossom II die with sponging done on the edges using Rich Cocoa ink. The BG is a new EF by Sizzix that is one of my faves. I kept it clean and simple so I wouldn't cover up the embossing. So glad you stopped by...I appreciate your comments...

STAMPS: Delightful Dahlia (leaves) - PTI
PAPER: Webster's Pages petite papers, Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate
INK: Memento Rich Cocoa
ACCESSORIES: CB, Blossoms II die & Delightful Dahlias die (PTI), MS arch lattice border punch, Brad, MS twill tape, Diamond EF by Sizzix, Sponge
