SC223 & Color Throwdown #37

Good Morning! Had alot of fun with these two challenges! Used the sketch challenge from SCS 223, even though I haven't posted on there in a long time. I actually did the card for the Wednesday, April 8th Color Throwndown #37, located HERE . I was thrown by the colors, once again, but what I love about this challenge is that it allows me to use colors I would not normally put together. This challenge was to use Pink Pirouette, Sage Shadow, and Cameo Coral. All paper I used were SU, except for the sage DP, behind the image. That awesome paper came from Carol, as did the GREAT new EK Success Punch, that I used on the edge of the Pink DP. THANKS CAROL!! The stamps are all Penny Black. Found buttons and floss to match perfectly, as well as a sheer ribbon I've been hoarding. Added some glitter to the flower. Image was colored in with Tombow watercolor markers, using a brush to blend, on heavy watercolor paper.

Have a great day and Thanks for visiting!

Heidi, this is adorable! Great mix of the colors, and that image is too cute! There's going to be some tough decision-making this week for Featured Stamper, I can tell! Thanks for playing!

Duh, I thought you had made TWO CTD cards, sorry! But I see I have missed a lot of creations here, I think I had better sign up as a follower!

What a great card Miss H! Those are very pretty colors for this challenge. I am finding those challenges are changing how I put colors together too!
