June Guest Designer at CTD




Yes...that would be me! It's a first for me and I'm so excited because I've become a regular fan of their color challenges every Wednesday! To see all the wonderful samples by the regular DT members, check out the Color Throwdown blog and join in! LeAnne has given us a vivid color combo which I love! I kept my card CAS and CB'd the top with a border EF. The leaves are a Sizzix die; the flowers are dies by PTI and the border is a new punch by Martha. I stamped the flowers with French Script BG stamp, sponged the edges with Pink Passion, curled them around a stylus tip and layered with dimensionals. Thanks for stopping by...

STAMPS: French Script BG by SU, Well Scripted by SU
PAPER: Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, Green Galore, Black, Neenah Solar White
INK: Versafine Onyx Black
ACCESSORIES: Blossoms II die (PTI), Leaves die (Sizzix), MS Optic Dot punch, CB, EF, Vintage buttons (PTI)
