The Best Is Yet To Come–CTD #248


Hey, there! It’s Wednesday so it’s time for Color Throwdown! Today sweet Broni has a sweet color combo for us:

swatch 248
I was in need of an anniversary card so I went all mushy with this design :) First, I stamped a Kraft card stock card base with the herringbone design from LJD Spring Backgrounds and Versamark ink. Then I cut out Die-namics MPD Rose Bouquet from Primitive White card stock and stamped the rose with Pink Lemonade ink. To get the contrast I simply stamped with the same color and the second stamp. I used Berrylicious ink for the leaves and stem and adhered them to a Primitive White card stock panel that was matted with Berrylicious card stock. The sentiment was stamped on a Die-namics Fishtail Flags STAX die cut—to get the two fishtail ends, I rolled my die cutting machine almost all the way to the end, turned the die around and rolled it back, again avoiding the already-cut fishtail end. Then I stamped the sentiment, from Clearly Sentimental About Anniversaries, and scored and folded the ends, popping it up on foam. To finish off the card, I dotted some iridescent sequins here and there.

Here’s the inside, with another sentiment from the set:
