Since these are pretty intense shades I decided to go very neutral with the rest of my design, so a Sweet Tooth card stock base was my starting point. Then I cut out a Die-namics Pretty Pocket Die & Stamp Set from more white card stock and stamped it with Wisteria Wonder ink and the denim pattern from LJD Western Backgrounds. I adhered it to my card base and added some pearl and clear jewel bling and some seam binding that’s a dead ringer for Wisteria Wonder, IRL. I added a Die-namics Leaf-Filled Flourish in each of the two greens and topped it off with three Die-namics Upsy Daisy flowers with pearl centers. Finally, I cut a Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon flag and stamped the sentiment in Perfect Plum ink.
Here’s the inside, with a sentiment from More Essential Sentiments.
And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have.
