Color Throwdown Challenge #215


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!   It's the lovely Lori's turn to host the challenge and what fun colors she gave us this week!!!!!!  I was going to make a Halloween card but remembered I had to make a birthday card for a friend who will celebrate her birthday next week. Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors...use what you have that comes close...we want everyone to have a chance to play!!! 



My card features a floral stamp by Serendipity Stamps called Sweet Pea. It was colored with Copics and I used the iSpy Sketch #38. The stamp only had one butterfly so I stamped two more, colored them with Copics, cut them out, and popped them up with foam dots. The ribbon and brick embossing folder finished it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Creative Craft Challenges2 - 3 of something
2. Use it Tuesday - orange (I have had the ribbon for 2 years and this is the first time to use it)
3. Catered Crop - circles/circle shapes


Be sure to add CTD215 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Hiya Joan, lovely use of the colours, what a pretty stamp - and I really like the way you added the extra butterflies.

I've been catching up on your latest cards - a great range of techniques that I'd like to try. you're always giving a lot of inspiration, I do enjoy visiting your blog. And I have really missed your Moxie Trigger cards!

Your 'cold wave' sounds a lot warmer than here, we are beginning to get quite a nip in the air now, and frost last week! I bit of your Texas sunshine would be welcome here, can you send a little across? lol

Hope it's not too quiet when your canine house guests move out, I bet you'll miss them.

Hugs from Brum. CoB
