Color Throwdown #201

Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!

First I want to congratulate Marlena M. as the winner of my Color Throwdown 200th Anniversary Blog Candy....Whoohoo!!!!! She was lucky number 36, drawn by I will get your goodies out to you this afternoon!!!

Now, on to this weeks challenge....It's the fabulous Wanda's turn to host the challenge this week and she has picked some beautiful colors to play with!!! Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors....come as close as you can using papers and colors that you have. 

My card features the martini glass and sentiment stamps from Rubbernecker and the Sweet Sunday Sketch #163. The martini glass was stamped three times...once on  So Saffron as the base, once on More Mustard for the base. and once on white for the drink layer. The drink was colored with copics and adhered to the base. Stickles was added to the glass rim and the glass was popped up with foam dots. My Favorite Things Die-namics were used for the scallop and the flower layers. A button and twine are the finishing touches.

Be sure to add CTD201 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
