I know I say this all the time, but REALLY! Where does the time go!? It's Wednesday again already and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! Today's colors were chosen by LeAnne. I'd know that just by the colors, LOL! She loves to use Bordering Blue ;-) NOT that I mind--I happen to like Bordering Blue, but ONE of my team mates is not fond of it (heehee).
I decided to make a window card this week.
I first used a PTI Stampers Select white card stock base and embossed the upper part with my Victorian embossing folder. Then I cut out a window with a Classic Square Nestabilities die, rounded the bottom corners, added some patterned paper from Basic Grey's Wisteria collection (which was LeAnne's inspiration for these colors), and a bow using PTI's Ocean Tides grosgrain ribbon. Then I stamped this sweet little Lockhart Violet Cupcake stamp on the inside with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Finally, I added some tiny topaz-y jewels to the center of the violets. Sorry it's such a poor photo. I took the pictures and didn't look at them until I was doing this post. And it was too late to take more: I'd taken the card to work to show my peeps there and they snatched it up to take to a patient. So, better pictures were sacrificed to a worthy cause :)
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 CTD89 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!
