Color Throwdown #38

Hello My Friends!!

It's Wednesday and time for another fun filled Color Throwdown Challenge. Today's hostess is Broni and her colors of choice for today are seen below:

My card is simply a Baja Blue based card with a Basic Gray panel matted with Ruby Red. I had a scrap of designer paper laying on my table that had these colors marbled through and thought that would work nicely for my main image panel. First I did the border with my new Martha Stewart "Arch Lattice" border punch then stamped the Stampscapes "Lakeside Cabin" image directly onto the designer paper. I think that worked out rather cool ... what are your thoughts on this technique???

For a little added dimension, I used a fine tip black Creative Memories marker to do the faux stitching and the SU photo corners were embellished wtih Colorbok metal dots. My sentiment is by AMuse and was stamped with Versafine black as was my main image.

Since I sold several cards at my sister's beauty shoppe ... I've decided to make my next several challenge cards geared at cards that she can sell. This will be a nice "masculine" birthday card I think. Thanks for stopping by today ... have a wonderful day!!

Footnote: A good friend of mine is always irritated by the lack of views of the INSIDE of the card so I made sure to complete this card and photograph the inside ... "here you go Linda ... just for you!!
