Color Throwdown #340
Hello friends, and happy Wednesday! We’ve got another Color Throwdown challenge for you today and Jodi is our hostess with this wonderful inspiration photo that just full of Springtime goodness!
I just couldn’t resist order the new Perky Posies die set from Lil’ Inker Designs, and it arrived just in time for me to take to my stamping retreat this past weekend and make this card…
Let me just say, this is one fun little set of stitched flower dies! They’re perfectly sized and totally cute with the stitching detail! I was inspired by this sketch I found on the Scrapbook & Cards Today website, so I used it for my card, inverting the design. The BG Gingham background stamp from My Favorite Things is stamped in Grout Gray hybrid ink, and the “Happy” in the sentiment is from the Lil’ Inker Quick Notes stamp set. (The “birthday” came from a set borrowed at the retreat, but I don’t know what company it’s from… sorry!) I added some enamel dots to a few of the flower centers for extra dimension.
Be sure to stop by the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration. Barbara Anders
