Color Throwdown

Happy Wednesday everyone! Check out the GORGEOUS colors Jodi has chosen for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!  One of my co-workers has a mother celebrating her 95th birthday this month and I was asked to create a card for her!  I knew these colors would work perfectly for the occasion!

I started with sponging the background with a new Pure Color dye ink - Beanstalk - by WPlus9 and a chevron pattern stencil (Simon Says Stamp).  Just love that their ink pads give such smooth, vibrant coverage when stamped!  The flowers were inked with another of their new colors - Little Piggy - and was stamped off once for the 1st step.  I ran the die cut heart through my crimper then sponged Color Box white pigment ink on the edges.  The numbers are glittery black stickers.

STAMPS: Rosy Posy, Rosy Posy Step 2, Wet Paint - all by PTI.
PAPER: White and Kraft by PTI.
INK: Beanstalk and Little Piggy by WPlus9; Versamark; ColorBox Frost White.
ACCESSORIES: Rosy Posy and Wet Paint dies by PTI; Jotted Heart die by Verve; Crimper, Sequins by Avery Elle; Paper doily; White thread.

That stenciled background is gorgeous! I may have to try some of those inks (not like I need to add any more inks to my collection!).
