Color Throwdown Challenge #184


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! The fabulous Bar  is our hostess this week and she has picked some beautiful springy colors for us to create with!! 

My card features an adorable stamp from Whipper Snapper....it was colored with Copics, cutout with Nestabilities, and popped up with foam dots. The background paper is Basic Grey's Lily Kate and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics...the ribbon, button, and twine finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Crafty Bloggers Network - floral
2. Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Spring colors
3. The Crafter's Cafe - ribbon or lace
4. Let's Ink It Up - show us your flowers

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 CTD184 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Beautiful job with the color combo! I love the blue oval mat and the purple ribbon (and of course the image - I'm a sucker for all things tea and coffee!). Thanks

OMGosh, Joan, this card is just lovely! The overall design is so pleasant to look at--lots to see, but balanced in shapes and colors. And, what a fab job of coloring! I need to learn to color lighter images like this. I get carried away until everything is dark and saturated. Hope the rest of your week is wonderful! ~Hugs!
