Color Throwdown #98


If it's Wednesday, that means it's time for another Color Throwdown! This week Barbara is our host and she was inspired by the new paper from Basic Grey called Capella in choosing these beautiful, elegant colors! Stop by the Color Throwdown blog for all the details! (And just a note... again, that's the COLOR Throwdown blog! Not to be confused with any other Throwdown challenge blogs out there! This one is the original... anything else just means that someone couldn't come up with a better name for their challenge!)

For my card, I CASE'd myself and took my inspiration from a card I made a day earlier for a class at the store. I substituted the Throwdown colors, and made a few minor changes but liked the card I made for class so well I decided it'd be worthy here, too! The background on my square is made with a Cover-a-Card background stamp called "Scratches" from Impression Obsession, and the silhouette flowers I used are from IO, too. My sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps.
My Throwdown sisters have created some beauties today with these colors, so be sure and stop at their blogs for some eye candy!
