Color Throwdown #52



WOW ... number 52 ... that means a whole years worth of Color Throwdown challenges ... where has the time gone??? Did you know that the Throwdown now has SPONSORS??? Yep ... go check it out!




Today Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits is our hostess and she has come up with some fun colors. I decided to look through my designer papers and see if I could find something that would work. I came across these papers from the Basic Grey Wisteria pack and thought they'd work just fine.
I must still be in "Stamp Simply" mode because this card took me all of 10 minutes once I decided on the paper! LOL!! If you checked out my last posting, you read that I spent a little extra time with Joan Fricker this past week, (waving Hi! to Joan) of Joan's Gardens and of course I had to make a "few" purchases. This stamp set is by Penny Black and I thought the image matched the paper perfectly. I stamped the image onto the Basic Grey dp using Perfect Plum and for the sentiment I used Chocolate Chip. I've added a few dots of Stickles to give it a little dimension. The border punched used on this card is by Fisker's and is called Apron Lace. Julie Koeber (Out to Impress) purchased this punch during our trip and made some awesome cards with it ... so of course I had to run right out and buy one too ... Thanks Julie, you are such an enabler, LOL!! (waving Hi to Julie).
Thanks for stopping by! I'm going to have several postings over the next day or two ... trying to get caught up on all the challenges I missed!!
