Color Throwdown & TYIC







Hi everyone! Check out the new, gorgeous color scheme chosen by Vickie this week for the Color Throwdown Challenge! I totally LOVE those wall vases!  I might just have to check them out on Etsy (#dangerouswebsiteforme, #love).

I'm also playing along with the first of the new year Tag, You're It Challenge #13 with an inspiring tag by the talented Heather Campbell!  


My card uses a new (to me) Sweetheart Tag die by Simon Says Stamp!  I cut it out using Kraft, Bermuda Bay and White cardstock then changed up the inlaid pieces.  I then arranged some florals from WPlus9's Pretty Little Peonies stamp set.  I was inspired by the copper bands in the CTD photo and the touch of gold in the tag photo to add metallic gold embossing and a gold die sentiment (PTI's Wet Paint).



Congrats to our guest star stamper this week - Kimberly Wiener!  Check out her blog HERE.

Also, we're blessed to have Bonnie Sharp as our guest designer in January.  Be sure and check out her lovely creation!
