Color Throwdown #165 and Creative Belli Challenge #129


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown!! The lovely Laura is our hostess today and she came up with this fabulous color combo inspired by Crate Paper's Farmhouse dp.

This is also for the Creative Belli's 1-2-3-4 Challenge ...I used 1 button, 2 birds, 3 flowers, and 4 pearls.

The adorable Stampavie image called Blossom Birds was colored with Copics and I used Jen's October SFYTT sketch. The paper is from Stampin Up!  and sewing, a Cherry Lynn Flourish die, lace, pearls, seam binding, button, and twine finish it off.
Recipe: Stamps: Stampavie
Paper: White, Pool party, Stampin Up! dp
