Color Throwdown #50

Happy day! It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! Today's colors come to us courtesy of the fabulous Broni! Broni chose Kiwi Kiss, Tempting Turquoise, and Real Red. I love these colors!!!!!

This patterned paper from the Citrus mat pad by DCWV was perfect! And I had this Lockhart Apples in Chintz Bowl stamp that had never seen ink. A match made in heaven, LOL!

The focal image was stamped on Pure Luxury 80 lb paper by Gina K with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. It was cut/embossed with a Nestabilities circle die, matted, and popped up on 3M foam squares. A few buttons for balance, some stitching, and it was done! I'm liking it and I hope you do too!

C'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use Mr. Linky to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily.
