Color Throwdown

Check out these great summery colors chosen by our hostess, Lori, for this week's Color Throwdown challenge! I had full intentions of going with florals, but once I stamped the plaid background, it seemed to call out "BABY" to me! It was perfect to finally use the diaper dies from MFT's Oh Baby Die-Namics set. 

The only way for me to get the plaid stamps to line up properly is by taking Barbara Anders' advice and adhering the cardstock to grid paper with repositionable tape (you can see her photo tutorial HERE).  I stamped in all four colors with Cool Caribbean, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose and Kiwi Kiss inks.  The blue strip was embossed using SU's Adorning Accents border folder and I added a black rhinestone eye to the little bluebird.  I love having a generic baby card in my stash that could go for a boy or a girl!  I'm using the layout for the current Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge - with a wee bit of tweaking.

Our guest star stamper this week is Betty Schaub, so be sure and visit her blog and say hello!  Play along with us this week and you just might be in the spotlight next week by being our guest star stamper!  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.

This is just too, too cute! You don't have babies on the mind, do you? I went to a baby shower in Charleston this past weekend and I'm loving all the new things available now. My, how things change! Love your adorable card!
