Color Throwdown #236



Hello everyone!!  It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! Lynn is our hostess this week and she picked this beautiful inspiration photo and colors...isn't it gorgeous!!! Since I didn't have a pansy image to color, I decided to dig out my last sheet of Orchid Opulence to make a flower. 

  

Die-namics dies were used for the flower and the leaves....the layers were embossed with the Swiss Dot embossing folder and the twine was colored using a Copic marker. The paper was retired Stampin Up! and the scallop was made with a Rick Rack Die-namics. To finish it off, I used a sentiment stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps Light of the World stamp set.

Be sure to add CTD236 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
