Color Throwdown Guest

I was thrilled to be asked by the Color Throwdown Challenge Blog to be the Guest Designer for March! Their blog is one of my favorite weekly visits, and I am always inspired by the Design Team's samples and color combinations. Participating in this challenge so often has really helped my card-making skills improve!

So now onto this week's lovely combination chosen by Broni Holcombe...

This lovely courtyard is awash in gray, purple, lavender,and  kraft! Here is my card using Papertrey Ink's A Bit More: Butterfly Blooms mini stamp set, and Pinkfresh Studio's Fleur 1 stamps and dies....

The butterfly is stamped with Versamark on gray paper, then heat embossed in white. The sentiment is from PTI's Balloon Strings Mini stamp set. I also added a frame of A Muse Studio's woodgrain patterned paper cut with the Shape Shifters Square #3, and a wreath cut with the Rustic Wreath dies.

Used lots of Broni's neutral kraft and gray, then spots of (or dare I say "splashes of" 😉) watercolored lavender flowers and "blueberries" using Nuvo Drops!

So excited to join the ladies at Color Throwdown this will make my often dreary March in upstate New York so much cheerier. Thanks for stopping by!
