It's yours truly hosting this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! I was intrigued by these faceted gems and the colors that were used by the artist. For me, it triggered the use of some geometric shapes in my card creation - thanks to WPlus9's new Ink Splats set which I paired with the Triangles set.
I then ran the stamped panel through the Big Shot using Cuttlebug's Diamond embossing folder. I scored two lines 1/4" apart at each end of the sentiment banner, then folded it so it would "pop up" to add some dimension. I just had to add some silver sequins since they have faceted edges to them.
We have some exciting news to announce! We have a new design team member - the ultra-talented CINDY LAWRENCE from The Creative Closet! So happy to have Cindy joining us!
