Color Throwdown #29


For today's Color Throwdown Challenge, I've created a very simple card and I'm very happy with how it looks.
Looking through my "floral based" designer paper I stumbled across this 12x12 sheet of Colorbok Dogwood paper that is inspired by Thomas Kinkade AND it contained ALL the colors for today's challenge. The image is beautiful, but I just had to cut into it and take the portion I wanted for today's card. The only other steps to this card were to stamp my sentiment in Versafine black which was clear embossed, double mounted it with the appropriate colors and upon each new layer I distressed the edges and punched a hole to tied a bow. That's it!!
Thanks for stopping by today ... please come back later when I'll have my card for today's SCS sketch challenge. That's always fun too!! Happy Stamping!!
