CTD37 - Just a Little Note


This week's Color Throwdown Challenge is Sage shadow, Cameo coral and Pink Pirouette. What lovely spring colors!! I used the PaperTrey Ink set Floral Frenzy. PTI is gearing up for their monthly release (set for the 15th of each month) and so far the sneak peeks are saying "BUY ME!!" I know I'll have yet another big order for them this month!!!!! I stamped the daisies in PTI Fresh Snow, the centers in Summer sun and the stems in Sage shadow. I also sponged around the scalloped edges with Cameo coral just to darken it up a bit. The DSP is Porcelain by Basic Grey. I can't believe I put this whole card together then discovered the coordinating brads still sitting there on my desk, what a goof. Well I need to add the clear rhinestones because I smudged along the flower stems (no such thing as a smudge, only a place to embellish!!). Each of the ovals that I used my Nestabilities on are popped up for lots and lots of dimension!! And the pearls are actually Dew Drops! I love 'em!! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Easter.

This is beautiful! I actually got some Porcelain AFTER I did the challenge! But since I love the colors, that's okay, I am sure I'll be able to use it! This is such a great layout and the flowers stand out so much with that ink....I will have to look into getting some, I keep hearing how great it is! Thanks for playing with us!

This is so gorgeous! I love how you used the Floral Frenzy set and I LOVE your take on the CTD challenge! Your card has an almost vintage or Victorian feel...reminds me of my summers on the lake growing up :O) Very pretty!

Just been looking thru your blog and card gallery over at SCS for the first time. Love your work - clean and tidy. This card however was a standout, not least because you used Cameo Coral in a way that is very appealing. It's always been a bit of a doozy for me, LOL.
