Hello everyone...it's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! I just want to take a minute to thank the CTD DT for asking me to be their February Guest Designer....I have had such a wonderful month creating with these oh, soooo talented ladies!!!!
Tammy chose the awesome colors this week: Tangerine Tango, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, and Chocolate Chip.
I used mostly pink and yellow with a touch of Chocolate Chip and a hint of the Tangerine Tango. The flower image is from Layers of Color's Merci Bouquet set...it was colored with copics, cutout, and attached with a dimensional over the same stamped image on the Nesties die cut scalloped circle.
Sewing was done around the background layers and on the sentiment layers...the sentiment is from LOC's Sent With Love set. Pearls, lace, wrinkled seam binding, brad, large rick rack, and the scalloped edge at the botton finishes it off.

Layers of Color
Cake Decorating Party!
while being creative with Layers of Color, pretty papers, laces, flowers, and even jewelry!
The cake slices were made with Prism Papaya Puree Light cardstock. One of the flower images from LOC's Merci Bouquet set was stamped with Versamark onto the Papaya Puree paper, embossed with clear ep, cutout, and attached to each side of the cake slice. A gold pearl was added to the flower centers. Lace was adhered to the top edge, gold pearls were added along with pearl and rhinestone flourishes. The flowers on top were created using LOC's Flowering Gems set...the flowers were stamped on the K&Co. Life's a Journey dp, cutout, distressed a little, layered with dimensionals, and the edges were covered with Diamond Stickles. Gold pearls were added to the centers. The leaves from the same set were stamped on Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime dp, cutout, edged with Diamond Stickles, and attached to the under sides of the flowers.

1. Cut several strips of patterned paper 3/4 inch wide and about 8-10 inches long. I used Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime dp for my first card and scraps of different papers for my second card.
2. Using glue or double sided tape, arrange the strips of dp with sides touching and the edges even on a piece of computer paper or thin cardstock. I made a consistant pattern but you can mix the colors any way you want.
Thanks for dropping in today...hope you can join us for the TLC challenge on Splitcoast!!!

I had this fun little wooded birdcage and wanted to use it with the Bo Bunny Crush paper because the paper had the cutest little black birdcages all over it. The wood birdcage was colored with a black marker and the birds from Layers of Color's Birdday Party set were added. The sentiment from the same set was layered on real red and the wrinkled seam binding, button, and twine finished it off.
This is for a few challenges:
1. ABC Challenge - old-fashioned or vintage look
2. Stampin Royalty - use markers
3. Tuesday Throwdown - buttons
4. Terrifically Thrilling Thursday Challenge - Show Us what You Got!
Thanks for dropping by this morning.....hope your day is fabulous!!!!

You really need to watch the video to get the folds just right...I thought this was going to be difficult but I was shocked at how easy it was!!!
Supplies includes an 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheet of two sided designer paper, a strip of designer paper for the belly band, a bone folder, and what ever decorations you want on the front and the inside. Now, go to the video for the directions!!
You might want to use a piece of computer paper for the first one so you don't mess up a piece of dp...I used a piece of dp that was too heavy and the folds didn't work.
I used Stampin Up! dp and stickers from K&Co.....this was just tooo much fun!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you join us for this awesome challenge!!!
