Best. Mom. Ever.–Color Throwdown Challenge #487


Hello! It’s time for a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! Lori has challenged us to use these very Spring-y colors this week, based on her inspiration piece.

I’m using a bunch of the just-released Bold Blossoms Stamp Set and Die-namics from MFT for my card. In addition, I stamped a few smaller images directly to my card front to “fill in”.  I added some white dots to the flowers and some black “stitches” to the leaves. Then I stamped my sentiment and added a Stitched Mini Scallop Circle STAX cut from Black Licorice card stock for some interest after sponging lightly with Spearmint dye ink.


I arranged the flowers, adhered them down, and used Nuvo Crystal Drops—Gloss White in a few places. To finish off, I added a few Sprinkles.

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. 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 CTD487 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd487 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our incredibly talented April Guest Designer, Hannelie Bester!
