Thank You–Color Throwdown Challenge #593

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week
Broni is our hostess and she’s chosen a gorgeous color combo for us to play work with.

I love these stylized butterflies in the recently released MFT Brilliant Butterflies Stamp Set and Die-namics!! So many ways to stamp them up but I decided to go the traditional route and highlight each butterfly with a circle created with Foil Frames – Circle Die-namics.

First I applied the foil, using my Glimmer System on Smooth White card stock—it foils like a dream!!! Once that was done I stamped the sentiment from Main Squeeze Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base covered with the new Woodgrain Whimsy paper pack.

Next I stamped the butterflies (colors listed below) added them with some foam for dimension, and finished off with enamel hearts in the challenge colors. Sweet!

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 CTD593 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd593 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!
