Color Throwdown

It's yours truly hosting this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! I was intrigued by these faceted gems and the colors that were used by the artist.  For me, it triggered the use of some geometric shapes in my card creation - thanks to WPlus9's new Ink Splats set which I paired with the Triangles set.

I then ran the stamped panel through the Big Shot using Cuttlebug's Diamond embossing folder.  I scored two lines 1/4" apart at each end of the sentiment banner, then folded it so it would "pop up" to add some dimension.  I just had to add some silver sequins since they have faceted edges to them.  

We have some exciting news to announce!  We have a new design team member - the ultra-talented CINDY LAWRENCE from  The Creative Closet!  So happy to have Cindy joining us!

We have a new talented stamper guesting at CTD for the month of May - Annette Allen from My Clever Creations!  Welcome, Annette!

Our guest star stamper this week is Roberta Morin, so be sure and check out her gallery HEREPlay along with us this week and you just might be in the spotlight next week!  You don't have to have exact colors to play along, but you do need to have a close resemblance.  Be sure and link your creation to the linky tool at the bottom of the current challenge post on the Color Throwdown blog.
