Here’s my card…
Color Throwdown #331 by Tammy Hershberger
Vickie had me so inspired with her CTD card last week, so I just had to pull out my Altenew Painted Flowers stamp set to create my card for this week.  I used the Mojo Monday sketch #386 for the layout… I completely love the tall, skinny cards!  My flowers were stamped with Cotton Candy hybrid ink and Ripe Raspberry hybrid ink from My Favorite Things, and also Versafine Onyx Black.  The leaves were stamped with Jellybean Green hybrid ink.  I used the LJD Darling Dots stamp set from MFT to add some polka dots to my pink circle that was cut with Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics, and stamped with a sentiment from Paper Smooches’ Chit Chat stamp set.  The Natural card stock base was stamped with the BG Woodgrain background stamp in Natural hybrid ink, and the Ripe Raspberry card stock panel on the card base was stamped in Ripe Raspberry hybrid ink with the BG Gingham background stamp.  On the Natural card stock panel in the center, I used the Small Brick Wall stencil to emboss, then sponged the edges with some ink.  Behind the circle is a piece of Jellybean Green card stock that was cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics and stamped in Jellybean Green hybrid ink with the Greenery background stamp from Impression Obsession.  A few sequins for embellishment, and I was done!  :)
