Color Throwdown #57

Are you ready for another Color Throwdown challenge? I love this week's colors, chosen by Cathy: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, and Passionate Pink. I don't have Passionate Pink, though, so I went with Pixie Pink.
We have a sponsor again this week--Our Creative Classroom. They've donated a very generous prize and you can find out all about them at the Throwdown blog.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Certainly Celery and patterned paper from the Romani/Gypsy 6 x 6 pad by Basic Grey. I'm following the Weekend Sketch Challenge #94 and the next two elements are more Certainly Celery and DP. The focal image was stamped on Whisper White with Certainly Celery ink using stamps from PTI's Everyday Button Bits. Have I mentioned that I love this set? Oh, good ;-) Then I cut/embossed it with a circle Nestabilities die and sponged some color on it while it was still in the die. I then matted it with Certainly Celery which was cut/embossed with a Labels Four die. The sentiment was stamped on a Spellbinders die cut ribbon slider and attached with blue grosgrain ribbon. And, of course, the buttons were attached with Perle cotton. I also added some pale green Dew Drops to a couple of corners for balance.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. And don't forget--this week there's a chance to win a prize. Now, 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 and so you'll be eligible to win (only directly linked entries will be considered for Featured Stamper or for the prize--see the sidebar on the blog for all the details). If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD57 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
