Color Throwdown Challenge is up...this one hosted by the talented Barbara Anders! She's got a wonderful fall color palette inspired by the Autumn spice paper pad by Lily Bee Design. I also used inspiration from Torico's card on the right which is Chupa's choice for the CASE Study Challenge. I kept the "winged thing" subject matter on the mostly clean space in the BG and used chocolate pearls as an accent. I added the square embossing "frame" using the following "sandwich" recipe for the Big Shot: open the multi-purpose platform at Tab 1; layer 5 pieces of CS as a shim, clear cutting mat, Nestie of choice (blade side up), CS, tan mat, clear cutting mat (I use the "cleaner" mat on the top rather than the "cut up" mat as it can leave marks on the card).
