Color Throwdown #105


Barbara is our hostess for the Color Throwdown this week, and she says she's tired of the heat and hoping Fall gets here soon, so she's picked a nice autumnal color combo for us to try today! I hope you'll give it a try, too! As always, you don't have to have these exact colors to play along, but just use whatever you have that is most similar! Stop by the Throwdown blog for all the details, and there you will find the Inlinkz widget to add a link to your creation, too!

For my card, I pulled out a beautiful sentiment stamp from Verses Rubber Stamps, and created some rolled paper flowers for accents. Each flower has a lilac-colored Dew Drop in the center, and I spritzed them all with a mixture of Perfect Pearls copper and a little bit of water for shimmer. This card is definitely not my usual style, so I'm really pleased with the fact that I stepped outside my box a little bit and cranked this design out!
My Throwdown sisters have created some beautiful inspiration for you today too (except for Laura who needs a major break this week!) so be sure and stop by their blogs!

I admire your rolled flowers! I tried it once and it was a disaster! That is such a great sentiment and wouldn't the world be a better place if everyone followed that line of thinking?!
