Color Throwdown #82

It's time for Color Throwdown #82 and this week LeAnne is our hostess! She has chosen colors inspired by what I think is a favorite of many... the Early Bird collection of papers from Cosmo Cricket. We'd love to have you play along this week! Visit the Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and when you have your creation completed hop back over there to leave us a link using Inlinkz.

For my card, I chose to use this fabulous Swing Set stamp set from Flourishes and therefore was able to combine my card with the Timeless Tuesday challenge from yesterday to use scallops. I actually put aside my Copic markers for this card. (Yes, I know... shocking!) I decided this image just begged to be watercolored, so that's what I did.

Stop and see what my Throwdown Sisters have created for the challenge this week, including our new Guest Designer for March, Pam Speidel! I'm so thrilled to have Pam joining us this month. Her designs are beautiful and I've been a fan of hers for a long time!

I hope your week is going smoothly! Mine is crazy-busy as I prepare to head to Joan Fricker's this weekend to teach Copic classes at her store. If there was ever a time I could use an assistant, it would be NOW! :)

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy stamping!
