Color Throwdown #226

CTD226 close-up
It’s Color Throwdown time again this week, and Denise is our hostess with this really pretty color combo!
swatch 226
Isn’t that a pretty picture?  I’m not a purple fan, but I really think these colors are lovely.  But…. I struggle with tone-on-tone colors like this, so I decided that less is more for my card today.
I saved this card months ago on one of my Pinterest boards and loved the simple wow-factor of it, so I decided to CASE the design for my card today.  I cut my frame by using my Rounded Banner STAX Die-Namics and added the Medium Leafy Flourish and the Butterflies Die-Namics.  The butterfly is accented with some lavender Kaisercraft rhinestones, and the sentiment is from the Vintage Cameo stamp set, stamped with Ranger Dusty Concord distress ink.
Be sure to visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…
