Color Throwdown #245

swatch 245
Hey there!  I’m happy today to be back with my Color Throwdown sisters after my blogging/stamping break last month!  I’m the hostess for today’s challenge with this beautiful Springtime color combo for you to try.  I hope you’ll find some inspiration in these colors.
I needed a sympathy card last week for my former boss, so I created this with the colors for today…
KSS CTD245
For this card I used my beloved Multi-Step Tulip Garden stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps, along with a sentiment borrowed from the 3-Step Daisy set.  I stamped the tulip using Ranger Tattered Rose and Dried Marigold distress inks, and Regal Rose ink from Stampin’ Up!  The leaves were stamped with Memento Pear Tart, Bamboo Leaves and Olive Grove inks.  I embellished with a few blush-colored pearls.
On the inside I added a smaller tulip from the set, along with the sentiment from the Simple Sentiments set.

The multi -layer stamping really shows a lot of dimension in your card!! It looks sooo real! Tulips are also my fave -- so it's a winner in my book!
Adding tulip stamp set to my kitchen sink list... :)) :))
