Color Throwdown

Happy hump day once again! Vickie is our hostess for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge and has a most appropriate WARM image to inspire us (very timely for the bitter cold temps happening this month - at least for some of us).  Here's my take on it (including a wee bit of "neutral" green and yellow - lol)...

The tweed stenciled background has been on my leftover pile for quite some time and thought it would work perfectly with this postage frame accented with a new Reverse Confetti sentiment and flowers!  Here's what I used...

STAMPS: The Lord's Strength (Reverse Confetti), Garden Bunch (Reverse Confetti).
PAPER: Basic Gray, Smoky Slate (SU), Neenah Solar White, Green (? source - from my mountainous scrap pile).
INK: Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate, Daffodil Delight, Memento Tuxedo Black.
ACCESSORIES: Tweed stencil by Hero Arts; Stitched rectangle die by Lil' Inker Designs;Stamped Note, Garden Bunch and Leafy Confetti Cuts by Reverse Confetti; White thread; Rhinestones (SU).

A big shout out to our guest star stamper - Peggy Gottschau of That's A Lot of Scrap! - and to our talented February guest designer - Kay Miller of My Joyful Moments.

For more inspiration, check out the design teams' blog links below OR you can go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on how to play along and you can see all the sample entries in one location.
