Rose Hello–CTD #277


Are you ready for another Color Throwdown? Broni has a GORGEOUS palette for us this week—so soft and pretty based on her inspiration piece.

swatch 277

I started off with a Kraft card stock base, then added a strip of patterned paper that I made using Sno Cone card stock, Sno Cone ink, and Striped Backgrounds. Then I embossed a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock with MPD Moroccan Stars stencil and popped it up on foam. I cut out some roses using MPD Rose Bouquet Die-namics and stamped them with using MPD Blooming Roses in Bubblegum ink first, then added the second layer with Regal Rose ink. The leaves were stamped with Sno Cone ink. I stamped the sentiment, from MPD Contemporary Roses, on a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock with Steel Gray ink and popped it up on foam to finish it off.

On the inside is a sentiment from Get Well Wishes.


And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the
