Color Throwdown #499

Hello friends.  Playing along with this week's Color Throwdown challenge with the beautiful colors of Blue, Yellow, & Green.


Here's what I came up with using these lovely colors:


I started by making my background using PTI's Text & Texture: Roses stamp set and two shades of blue from Gina K (Blue Raspberry & Powder Blue), and then die cutting the dotted rectangle with PTI's Mix & Mat: Flourishes die.  I love that little pop of design all those die cut dots give!


I used PTI's The Sweet Life to stamp my roses and leaves and then fussy cut them out and added them to my background.  At first they got lost against all the pattern of the blue background, so I added a plain white rectangle just inside the dotted area, and then my flowers and leaves showed up much better.  I also added a little sprig from PTI's Spruce & Sprigs set and used GA on the blue berries to make them stand out a bit more.  I finished with a simple sentiment banner and a yellow enamel dot.

Check out all the beautiful and fun cards from the DT and then play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  2. Marcia, this is stunning! I love the background and how the yellow flowers just pop! You are so good at fussy cutting too. Whenever I fussy cut, it looks like a two year old did it. I'm always impressed and amazed by your talent.
    ps. The GA berries are brilliant too!!
