Color Throwdown #110


Hello stampers! It's Color Throwdown time again, and this week LeAnne has picked what I thought was a really elegant color combination! However, when you check out what the other girls have created this week, you'll see it can also lean towards the cute side, and it's great for some Christmas greetings, too!

For my card, I decided to use the Sweet Spring Jolinne stamp set from My Favorite Things, along with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #91 for this week. The colors seemed to suit this image of Jolinne as a ballerina quite well, and it also gave me a chance to use this pink netting as an embellishment. Our pastor's wife recently started a new Sunday School class for the teenage girls at our church, and this netting was tied around the books the girls got at their first class. Kaylie sweetly saved it for me, thinking maybe I'd like to use it on a card, and she was right! The whole card is spritzed with a combination of water and Perfect Pearls for some added shimmer. I think since Kaylie saved that netting for me, this just might end up being her birthday card. Yes *sniff, sniff* my baby is turning 18 next Tuesday! I still can't wrap my head around that fact, but like it or not I have to deal with it! I'm having a wonderful party for her this weekend, and hopefully I'll be able to make some time to tell you about it, too!
Stop by the Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and then check out what my Throwdown sisters have created using these colors...

I just love that set & got it when Kim had $5 off Jolinne last week. I couldn't resist the adorable bunny.

I'm just loving that sweet stamp. I love pink tulle accent and the large pearl. I was thinking it was pretty genius that you did the outline circle in the background instead of a solid one! It's a pretty addition of that bold color without overpowering your sweet image and design!

Just lovely, Tammy! That tulle made the perfect accent. I can't believe that Kaylie will be 18 . . .

This is beautiful, Tammy! What a pretty little ballerina. Love how you colored her dress/hair and added glitter to the ribbon around her waist. Just lovely, my friend.
