Color Throwdown

There's a new Color Throwdown Challenge going on and Melody has chosen a beautiful spring color  combo...inspired by this gorgeous outdoor living "room"!

I had this bright pink gelli plate printed sheet in my stash and used that as the starting point.  I had used a Hero Arts tweed pattern stencil for the first layer of the gelli print.  After it was dry, I added white modeling paste with a Dotted Flowers stencil by Dylusions.  I wanted to use twine to attach a sentiment tag, so used a lighter green (Sour Apple by MFT) for the leafy flourish so it would match the twine color.  This daisy die was a freebie with MFT's recent release and makes such a quick and easy layered flower!  The sentiment is from Verve's Small Celebrations set.

Due to a little email glitch, we have two Guest Star Stampers to inspire you this week:  
Jane @ Scrap Pieces of Me
Sandy Mathis @ Stamp With Sandy 
Play along with us this week and you just might be in the spotlight next week!  You don't have to have exact colors to play along, but you do need to have a close resemblence.  Be sure and link your creation to the linky tool at the bottom of the current challenge post on the Color Throwdown blog.

Your work is always so amazing, Wanda! Your background is just gorgeous, but I think I love the twine, tag and little dragonfly embellishment the best! Thanks for having me as a guest on your blog this week!

The simple white and gray on that bold pink is lovely. The little dragonfly is a sweet touch!
