Color Throwdown #292

swatch 292
Hello, friends… I’m running a little late today with my Color Throwdown blog post!  I left home early this morning for an outing with some co-workers and realized I never typed up my post!  LOL  That might be a first for me.  But anyway, I’m home now, and hope you’ll still come around to see what I have to share today.
Vickie is our challenge hostess this week, and she’s got a beautiful Spring color combo for you to try, with a twist!  Whadya’ think of the metallic silver addition?  It was fun to shake up the color combo a little this week!  So here’s my card…
I created my background with some Picked Raspberry and Festive Berries distress inks, along with some spritzes of water and Heidi Swapp Tinsel Color Shine spray. Then I used some Wendy Vecchi Metallic Silver embossing paste, along with a Prima-brand Chevron stencil up at the top, then added a Razzle Berry cardstock Die-Namics Gerbera Daisy, and a Leaf-filled Flourish behind it.  The sentiment from More Essential Sentiments was stamped on a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics.
Be sure to stop over at the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…
