Beautiful Butterfly–Color Throwdown Challenge #524


Hello and welcome to the first Color Throwdown Challenge of 2019! I can’t believe I’m typing 2019!!!! Dang! I hope everyone had a great holiday season and that you’re ready to get some crafting done! This week Amy Rohl is our hostess and she’s got a gorgeous color combo based on an awesome inspiration piece. So let’s get inky!!


I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and built on it. First, a strip of Black & White Basic’s Paper Pack, then Single Stitch Line Tag-Corner Rectangle Frames Die-namics cut from Black Licorice card stock. Next I added Grand Greenery cut from Sour Apple and Gumdrop Green card stock and a butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set and Die-namics.


Then I added the sentiment, Beautiful Die-namics and a sentiment from Hello, Beautiful Stamp Set (I love these two so much!), heat embossed on Translucent Vellum cut with Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips Die-namics and finished off with some glittery enamel dots.

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 CTD524 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd524 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, along with our super talented Guest Designer, Vicki Finger!
