Color Throwdown

Happy hump day everyone! You are going to LOVE these colors that hostess Broni has chosen for the new Color Throwdown Challenge - Blush, Rose, Gray and White! I knew right away I wanted to ink up this freebie Daisy stamp set that Altenew recently offered with any paper order. 
I went with one of my 'go to' layouts by adding a striped border using MFT's Diagonal Stripes background stamp and Smoky Slate ink by SU.

Isn't that font gorgeous?  I'm loving Altenew's Super Script set!  I highly recommend using a MISTI to do repeat stamping (I did it 3 times) for a crisp, clear image.  

INK: Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride by SU; Fairy Dust, Silver Lining and Sweet Gelato by WPlus9; Memento Tuxedo Black.
PAPER: Rose Red, Neenah Solar White.

Congrats to our guest star stamper - Eliz Stewart of Paper Sweetness!  Be sure to stop by her blog to see her lovely card!

To get all the details on how to play along with the challenge, please go to the Color Throwdown blog and check out the info on the right sidebar!  You can also check out the rest of the design teams' creations for more inspiration on the CTD blog... or you can clink on their blog links below.
