Flowers are the music of life--Color Throwdown #35

Time again for the Color Throwdown Challenge--this is #35. Danielle picked the colors this week and they rock! Purely Pomegranate, Tangerine Tango, and Kiwi Kiss.

I'm still on my Verve kick, LOL. I love Julee's sentiments and I'm loving these new sets. After I decided on my DP, I knew this sentiment would be perfect. This design paper is so pretty, I decided to let it pretty much stand on it's own, so this was very easy and quick card, but I really like how it turned out.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Purely Pomegranate, and DP from a Prima mat pack called the Sasha collection. The focal image uses a stamp from Verve's Floral Symphony and was stamped on Whisper White with Purely Pomegranate ink. It was cut/embossed with a Nestabilities Lable One die and sponged with Purely Pomegranate before being taken out of the die. I punched a slot on the side, mounted it on the base card with 3M foam squares, and ran some sheer ribbon that's a good match for Purely Pomegranate through the sentiment and around the card. Three pomegranate Dew Drops in the right upper corner was all it needed to be finished, I think.

C'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD35 so we can see your beauty all in one place. And if you play, you *could* be picked as our Featured Stamper and a guest designer! Hope to see you there!
