Color Throwdown

The Layers of Color Cake Decorating Party is the next post down!!!

Hello's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! I just want to take a minute to thank the CTD DT for asking me to be their February Guest Designer....I have had such a wonderful month creating with these oh, soooo talented ladies!!!!
Tammy chose the awesome colors this week: Tangerine Tango, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, and Chocolate Chip.
I used mostly pink and yellow with a touch of Chocolate Chip and a hint of the Tangerine Tango. The flower image is from Layers of Color's Merci Bouquet was colored with copics, cutout, and attached with a dimensional over the same stamped image on the Nesties die cut scalloped circle.
Sewing was done around the background layers and on the sentiment layers...the sentiment is from LOC's Sent With Love set. Pearls, lace, wrinkled seam binding, brad, large rick rack, and the scalloped edge at the botton finishes it off.
Stamps: Layers of Color Merci Bouquet and Sent With Love
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, White, SU dp

Joan, you made another amazing card. I just love what you did with the image, colouring it, cutting it out and placing on top of the uncoloured image is a fabulous touch and is so different from colouring it flat. I like! CoB
