Color Throwdown Meets Viva la Verve

Hi everyone!  Vicki is hosting this week's Color Throwdown Challenge and she has chosen some happy colors! I immediately knew I wanted to use these Pebbles' papers and decided to pair it up with the Viva la Verve sketch challenge on SCS.  Check out this fun sketch by Charmaine!

I recently acquired a freebie toy at stamp club - thanks to one of the gals purging her crafting space.  It's a mini library pocket punch by McGill which is an ironic name for it as it's anything but mini!  The punch itself is one huge punch (3 3/4" x 4 1/2"), but the punched result creates an adorable little pocket - perfect to have my little peep peeping out!

I colored with Copics (Y13, Y15, Y17, B05, B04) then fussy cut, and added a rhinestone and some Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to the flower.

Here's hoping you will join us... and remember - you don't have to have exact colors.  Use something close and then link it up on the Color Throwdown blog using the linking tool at the bottom of the post.  If you post to an online gallery, please use the keyword, CTD 261.
