Color Throwdown Team!

Whoooo-hoooooo! I'm so excited to tell you that I've been asked to join the Color Throwdown team!! Fun Fun FUN!

Here's today's inspiration photo from Bar...

...and here's my card...


I used the new Dream Big set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, patterned papers are from Simple Stories Summer Fresh, CS colors are brocade blue and kraft, and I used some PTI orange stitched ribbon.  The green mat and blue mat behind the main image are both up on separate layers of foam tape. The image was colored with Copics (YR04, YR21, YR24, B21, B23, B24, YG11, YG13, YG17) and I added Kaiser pearls to the centers of hte flowers. A couple extra flowers and the butterfly were stamped a second time, colored, cut out, and glued onto the base image to get that "out of the box" look. The layout is Deconstructed Sketch #62.

Be sure to stop by and see what the other Color Throwdown team members have created for your inspiration...
