Color Throwdown

It's Wednesday and time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge...AND...we have a talented new guest designer for the month - welcome Nicole Nastali! Joan is our hostess and she has some really scrumptious colors for us based on these yummy cupcakes! They were perfect to break in some new MFT dies that arrived in happy mail the other day!

I sponged Pistachio Pudding ink on the leaf base which makes it appear a shade darker.  The rose has Pink Pirouette CAS layered over a Real Red base.  The rest is pretty simple and self explanatory.  My enabler's list is at the bottom of the post.

Great card, Wanda! Your bold burst on red on your weave is fabulous and the pink embossing really gives your card a polished look.
