Celebrate–Color Throwdown Challenge #586

Hi, everyone, welcome to a brand new
Color Throwdown Challenge!! This week’s lovely colors were chosen by Lisa, inspired by her sweet and whimsical inspiration piece.

I got some Gina K Iridescent Glitter Glitz a while back and decided to give it a whirl on this card. First of all I sponged some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper with Victorian Velvet and Wilted Violet Distress Inks. Once that dried, I spread the Glitter Glitz through Candy Stripes Stencil and allowed that to dry. I trimmed that down and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base with foam tape.

Next I heat embossed the sentiment from Bitty Birthday Wishes on Grape Jelly card stock cut with Skinny Strips Die-namics and adhered directly to the card front.

Celebrate Die-namics was cut from Gold Sparkle card stock and twice from white scraps, adhered them together with spray adhesive, and adhered it above the embossed sentiment.

I finished off with some glitter enamel dots and called it done!

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 CTD586 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd586 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 March Guest Designer, Cat Craig!
