Color Throwdown #140


Hey everyone, it's time for another Color Throwdown and this week Bar is our hostess! Now, I just had to give her a hard time with these colors because I swear everytime any shades of pink and blue are thrown into the challenge I canNOT get the notion out of my head that I have to make a baby card! Does your mind not automatically think "baby" when you see pink and blue like mine? I find it almost impossible to wrap my head around anything else, but I suffered through this time and made a non-baby card!

I decided to use the Perk Me Up Peeps and matching sentiment from Stamping Bella for my design, and paired the image with some paper from My Mind's Eye and a piece of fabulous twill ribbon that Bar gave me when I visited her last weekend! The peeps are colored with Copic markers on Bella's Bestest Cream paper. And my sentiment is stamped on a Lil' Inker Designs "Sentiment Flag" die cut.
Stop over at the Color Throwdown blog for all the challenge details! We have a new Guest Designer for this month so you'll want to make her feel welcome! AND we have a new Team Member to welcome, too! We LOVED having Carole Burrage around so much for the month of April that we just decided to keep her around PERMANENTLY! Woohoo!

Here are the blogs of my Throwdown sisters that you can check out for more inspiration...
