Color Throwdown 204

It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge and this week Broni has brought us this lovely photo for inspiration! Check out this gorgeous tank top...
I had to dig deep into my gray matter to come up with my card as these colors had me stumped for awhile! I guess that's why they call it a challenge - lol!  

Awesome tip alert!!  The doily is a die cut by Cheery Lynn Designs and thanks to the tips of several blog readers, I bought a metal shim from PTI that is the secret to getting a good die cut from the more intricate, detailed dies!  Sure glad that problem is solved. :-)

Here's hoping you can find some time to play along with us.  Remember to use the keyword CTD204 if you upload to a public gallery.  If you don't have exact worries!  Just use a color that's close and you'll be fine.  For more inspiration, you'll want to check out the other designers' blogs:

Gonna' have to check into the metal shim...I just use my "poker" that I got from SU years ago for the mat stack!!! Love that doily, butterfly, and bow!!!

Vickie Z said...

Ooops...the sweet scalloped tag stole my heart!

Joan Ervin said...

This is gorgeous, Wanda....the doily makes the perfect background and what a beautiful orange butterfly!!!!!

Denise Marzec said...

SUCH a beautiful card, Wanda! I love the butterfly and the big grey doily....thanks for the tip, too, about the shim. I've thought about buying a doily die, but held off because people warned me about how I'd have to poke out the little holes on my own. I'll have to check out the PTI site.

This is beautiful Wanda! The detail in this butterfly with the two colors is so pretty and I love the gray doily, it really makes everything pop!
