Colour Throwdown #43

Hello everyone! By the time I get this card posted … I will probably have missed the deadline for this challenge. But … I just loved the colours so much I wanted to try it! Colour Throwdown

This is a rather elegant combination … don’t you think? You might like to pop over to the “Colour Throwdown” blog to see some more lovely cards created using these scrummy colours. For some reason I was drawn again to my brand new “Friends 24/7” stamp set. (Oh … you haven’t yet seen my other “Friends 24/7” creations!!!  … I will show you them over the next few days!)

Card Recipe:

  • Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant, Lavender Lace, Old Olive, Whisper White
  • Stamp Set: “Friends 24/7” – Flourish on Lavender background, Flower embossed onto Eggplant, Here for You phrase – markers to rubber
  • Inks: Lavender Lace & Whisper White Craft stamp pads, Lavender Lace & Elegant Eggplant markers
  • Accessories:
    • Punches:Eyelet Border Punch, Horizontal Slot Punch, 2mm hand held circle punch
    • Embossing: Heat & Stick Powder, Green SuperNova Glitter, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Powder Pals
    • Accents: Lavender Rhinestone square brads, Certainly Celery Ribbon Originals (ret. SU!)

signature-picI was so taken with this combination that I decided I was going to do another … but didn’t quite get there. I will try it again sometime soon, though! Hope you’re having a great day! I am super busy setting up my new computer … and GOOD NEWS … my external hard drive also arrived today … so I am BACKING UP all my files! Oh! What a great idea!!! 😉
