Color Throwdown Challenge #257


Hello everyone!!  Hope all is well with you this week!!! We have been painting walls and trim so this old girl is mighty sore....climbing up and down a ladder is for the birds...LOL!!!! Anyway...Lori is the hostess for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge and she has pickled some beautiful pastel colors for you to play with!! 


My card features the sweet little ice cream cone and sentiment from Paper Smooches Sugar Rush set....the cone was colored with Copics and the ice cream was paper pieced with a scrap of swirly embossed paper. It was cutout and popped up with foam tape. The washi tape and  and the Doodlebug Sprinkles finish it off. 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD257 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!!
