Color Throwdown #392

Hello friends!  Happy Wednesday!


Have you seen the newest Color Throwdown #392?  I spotted it yesterday afternoon on Facebook and was instantly intimidated.  If you know me well, you know I don’t work well with blue!  But I also spotted this card by Kimberly Crawford that I had saved to one of my Pinterest boards, and my wheels got to turnin’!  So here’s what I came up with…

Color Throwdown #392

On a piece of Cement Gray card stock from My Favorite Things, I stamped the BG Thin Chevron background, then die-cut with Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-Namics.  Then I pulled out some Reverse Confetti products and die-cut "birthday" two times for dimension from the Fancy Words Confetti Cuts from Lush Lagoon card stock.  Then I used my Leafy Confetti Cuts and die-cut two branches from Sweet Tooth and Kraft card stocks.  I added the word "wishes" (from what stamp set I can't remember!) and embellished with a few black enamel dots!

Thanks to the Color Throwdown girls for another great challenge... I miss you, chicas!  Thanks for stopping by today!
