Color Throwdown #41


Today's Colorthrowdown Challenge was inspired by The Green Stack paper pad by Die Cuts With A View and is hosted by Danielle Kennedy. Please pop over, check it out and why not play along. The sample cards from this team are always inspirational.
I recently visited my friend, Tammy Hershberger (Stamp Happy) at Toyrifix (a member of this awesome challenge team) and purchased the Basic Grey Porcelain designer paper pack. I immediately layed this piece of designer paper out on my work table along with this Inkadinkado image to work with when I had the chance. After seeing today's color combination on the Throwdown I knew this was PERFECT.
The other images used here are from the Crafty Secrets (Bird Notes) set. The strip of Baja Breeze has been border punched using the Martha Stewart Floral punch and overlayed using SU Certainly Celery Ribbon with Dewdrops added for texture. After cutting out the little blue bird I decided to POP it up using dimensionals. The little faux stitching was created by using a fine tip black marker by Creative Memories.
Hope you like my card and are having a creative day. I'm a bit late getting my cards done today ... had to get the grass cut before the rain started before I could play. Would you believe I "JUST" had things put away when the rain came down and hasn't let up yet. Phew ... just in the nick of time!!!
