Color Throwdown Challenge #500

Hello friends.  This week's Color Throwdown challenge is an elegant one, and very fitting considering it's their 500th Challenge!!


I kept my Navy, Blush, Gold, and White card very CAS, just like the inspiration photo.


I started by embossing in gold PTI's Cover Up: Grid on TH water color cs and then water colored with Kuretake Gansai Tambi Deep Blue.  Once dry I layered on a white panel that I die cut with MFT's Peek-A-Boo Rectangle Die, and then added my flower that I embossed in gold and then water colored with Sweet Blush ink.  (The flower is from PTI's Vintage Linens)


I finished by adding my sentiment from PTI's Winter Woods stamp set and also adding a few gold sequins.

Check out all the BEAUTIFUL cards from the DT right HERE, and then play along!


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

  1. What a stunning use of these colors! The watercolored grid pattern on the background is a wonderful graphic opposite to the flowy and shapely flower. Beautifully done my friend!

  2. Beautiful card, Marcia...very lovely colors and I love your grid background! Have a wonderful weekend friend! We got back late on the 4th from our Detroit trip, that was a long flight, it didn't help that DH had us fly out on the red eye, that knocked me out for several days, told him I don't want to do that again! Heart Hugs, col
