Color Throwdown Challenge #35


For today's Color Throwdown Challenge we have a color combination of Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Purely Pomegrate. With being limited on time, I chose to use a white based card which was Cuttlebugged using a Sizzix embossing folder and added my "color" strips which were cut into 1-1/2" strips and border punched using Stampin' Up punches. The butterfly and flower in the right corner are from the Hero Arts stamp set called "Friends". The swirl image on the Pomegranate panel is from the Inkadinkado "wedding" stamp set and the sentiment is by AMuse. I used a Stampin' Up blender pen to pull he pomegranate color into the butterfly after stamping.
Well, that's it for card uploads today. We are sitting at the Cleveland Clinic and besides my laptop, I don't have any additional crafting supplies with me today. Hopefully I'll have some time this evening to work on today's SCS sketch challenge ... looks like a fun one.
Mark is doing pretty good today except for the fact that they are having probems with his Hickman Catheter ... doesn't seem to want to "draw" so they're having to go through anoher process and hopefully "get things flowing" then treatment can begin. It's going to be a little longer day today because he is also in need of additional fluids ... don't want him getting dehydrated!! Thanks for stopping by ... guess I'll go do some blog hopping! Have a great day!!

Hi Darlene! Looks like you've still been able to 'create' even with all the time spent at the hospital. Good for you. I love all the white in this card. I find myself more and more making 'white' cards. I love the image, papers, and colors in the 'Home Sweet Home' card, and I love the spring bird nest card! Such a sweet spring image and colors. great job on everything! Sorry to hear about Mark's catheter problems.
