Color Throwdown

Hello's time for a new Color Throwdown challenge! Isn't this fun boot such a great color inspiration? Thanks to Lori who is our hostess with the mostest this week!

I knew I wanted to use stripes somewhere on my card and I already had this panel stamped from the day my MISTI arrived in the mail.  It was my first attempt at using a large background stamp and sure enough...the first time I stamped it, there wasn't complete ink coverage.  No problem with the MISTI!  I just re-inked it and re-stamped...perfect results! 

I'm also playing along with the CAS(E) This Sketch! challenge where Chrissy Larson has this fun layout.  I thought I needed a little twinkle in my stars, so added a neutral silver glitter in addition to the red and turquoise.  

We're happy to announce a new guest designer for the month of March: Holly Brown of Glitter, Stamps and Ink!  Welcome, Holly!

Congratulations also go out to our guest star stamper this week - Kevin McDonald of McCrafty's Cards!

Great card with a bit of a masculine touch (the colours) - fun LO and the silver glitter stars add the perfect touch!

This is fabulous! Love how you used the striped element from the boots on your card. All of these MISTI posts are making me think I just may need one . . .
