Happy Wednesday! It's time again for the Color Throwdown Challenge and My Favorite Things' Wednesday Sketch Challenge. Our Color Throwdown host for this week is Cathy Rulli and here are the colors she chose:
And here's the MFT sketch. I really love this sketch, too. I *know* this will become a go to sketch for me.
You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Challenge and Design Teams will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.
And here's my card :) I'll admit that when I first saw these colors I was stumped. Two greens? And Ballet Blue? But, then I started looking through my patterned paper - which is what I do when I'm stumped. I came across this K & Co mat stack that I picked up recently at Michaels just because it had this gorgeous hydrangea paper (along with some other really pretty florals) and half my work was done. This paper and this sketch pretty much made the card for me, KWIM? I stamped the sentiment from Inspired by Butterflies on Sweet Tooth card stock and trimmed it to match the sketch. Then I made me some Ballet Blue flowers with the Flower and Leaf Trio Die-namics dies and layered them up. Finally, I added the tiny butterfly from the Butterfly Die-namics set and some pearls and it was done! And I love it :) Beautiful paper, a fabulous sketch, and awesome stamps and dies--what's not to love, right?
Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD129 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
