Color Throwdown/Retro Sketch



I merged my sample for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge with the Retro Sketch Challenge! I always love the designs that Arielle and her team come up with each week! Lynn has thrown down some awesome colors for us and I couldn't resist using some new stamps - Fresh Cut Florals - by W Plus 9 for my card.  This set has coordinating dies and the combinations of flowers and arrangements is literally endless!

I did my "flower arranging" in a mason jar image by Flourishes after coloring with Copics (BG0000, BG000, BG10) then fussy cutting.  It's a bit hard to see the doily and Nestie circle that form the BG to the flowers.  I love the "Charles" dotted chevron EF for the base white panel.  The sentiment was created using Fancy Framed Tags Two dies.  Some turquoise rhinestones finish off the card.

Hopefully you got to celebrate with us last week for our 5th anniversary bash and hopefully you were one of the lucky winners!  Remember to check back on the Color Throwdown blog tomorrow (Thursday) to see if you're a winner!
