Color Throwdown Challenge #292


Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Vickie is our hostess and what pretty colors she picked for us to play with!!!  


I decided to pull out a well loved but seldom used set...A Year of Flowers - Roses by Papertrey Ink. The flowers were stamped with Versamark on Melon Mambo card stock and embossed with white ep. I stamped and embossed several roses so I could cut out several parts of the rose and pop them up with foam dots for a little dimension!! The sentiment was embossed with silver ep and silver shimmery card stock was used  for matting. 

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 CTD292 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You can find out all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
