Color Throwdown Challenge #175


Good morning everyone!! Are you ready for another Color Throwdown Challenge?? Danielle  is our hostess with the mostess this week and she has picked a beautiful palette of colors and a real WOW  inspiration photo...check it out!!



My card features the Rubbernecker sentiment stamp called Music #582-01.  The background was embossed with the music score folder and then a cream colored ink pad was run over the raised embossing. ...don't look too close but the background layer is upside down...Yikes!!! I didn't notice it till the card was all together and I wasn't about to tear it up ...just don't tell anyone!!!
MFT's dies were used for the felt roses, Spellbinders dies were used for the leaves, and seam binding, gold cording and pearls finish it off.

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors to play along...use what ever you have that is similar to the challenge colors. Be sure to add CTD175 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Wow, those flowers just jump out of the gallery! Love this gorgeous card, Joan, and didn't even notice the music until you mentioned it! I did the same thing with a DD card one time and it was my last sheet of that particular DP. It fit so perfectly with the theme that I just left it - lol! My anal personality still cringes at the thought! :-)
