Clickabella--Color Throwdown #65

Danielle has pulled out all the stops with today's color combination for the Color Throwdown Challenge. She's asking us to use Taken With Teal, Certainly Celery, and Purely Pomegranate.

We have another sponsor this week, too: Stamping Bella. Get all the deets at the Throwdown blog.

I'm using Clickabella for my card. I love this image and it fits me to a "T", LOL! I stamped Bella on Gina K Pure Luxury 80 lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic markers for the most part. Her pants, however, are paper pieced. All patterned paper is from the Lemonade 6 x 6 pad by Basic Grey. Then I cut/embossed the image with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and matted with a layer of Certainly Celery. I think the rest is obvious. It's been a while since I used my Primas so I decided to pull them out for this little chickie. Ribbon, Primas, punched leaves, and Lemonade Glazed brads finish it off.

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 or to be chosen as Featured Stamper. So, 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). And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown--failure to do this will also disqualify you from winning. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD65 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
