Color Throwdown #88

Another week has gone by and we're ready for another Color Throwdown. This week, after a little break spent moving, Kristin is back and is hosting the challenge with these pretty colors! I have to admit, I love me some orange but I had my doubts about this color combo. I didn't know what she was thinking, but now that I've used the colors, I LOVE this combo! I'll be turning to it again in the future, for sure!

I have used my Whipper Snapper "Think Happy Thoughts" cling set from Anna Wight. This was one of the newly released sets in March, and is such a great stamp set. I especially like all the sentiments this set comes with. I used some new October Afternoon Fly a Kite paper on my card, and that pretty flower is something new I recently got at the store. These are white hydrangea flowers from Petaloo, and I love them because I can color them with Copics to match my designs perfectly! I started out using the Mojo Monday sketch for my layout, but ending up drifting from the actual sketch somewhat, so it's a very loose interpretation! Smiley from
Stop by the Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and then stop and see what my Throwdown sisters have created, too!

Thanks for stopping by today! It's an especially special day for me as my hubby and I are celebrating our 20th anniversary. It's so hard for me to believe that I've been married for 20 years! What's even more incredible is that he's put up with me for that long! Smiley from

Barbara said...

Love it! So bright and happy! And I love how your bow looks like leaves peeking out from under the flower. Didja do that on purpose? Clever girl!

Just gorgeous, Tammy! I love the way your ribbon looks like leaves and the fabulous little retro shape holding your sentiment. Just beautiful!

I love your card!! So very sweet!! I really like how you used the gray--it soothes the colors rather than makes them look drab!! WONDERFULLY done!
