Color Throwdown Challenge #226


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! The hostess this week is my sweet friend Denise and didn't she pick some gorgeous colors!!!! I was in need of a birthday card for my Niece so I not only used the CTD colors but the flower inspiration, too!!


My card features the Stampin Up!  set called Elements of Style. It was stamped twice...once on the card base and once on the top layer. Both were colored with Copics....the black matting was added and the top layer was adhered with foam dots. The birthday sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the pearls, button with seam binding, and the ribbon finish it off.

This is also for the Moxie Fab World's Use 10 Embellishments Challenge in the Moxie Fab World!! 
  I used 13 pearls for the flower centers and the button with seam binding.


Be sure to add CTD226 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
