Color Throwdown #491

Hello friends.  The Color Throwdown challenges have had some of the most beautiful color combinations lately, and this week was no exception!!


I love that light colored couch with the colorful pillows, but with 2 dogs in our house that just wouldn't work!  It does work to make beautiful cards though!!  :0)


 I used SSS's Tap Dance stencil and Altenew's Beautiful Day to create my card for a friend of mine that I think could use some "happy mail".

 
I embossed my sentiment from PTI's Penned Elegance first, then stamped my flowers and leaves and then using the stencil with my kraft ink last.


I attached my panel to a kraft card base and then finished with a few iridescent sequins and some twine.

This challenge is open till tomorrow (5/7), so check out all the lovely, lovely cards from the DT and then play along.  Details can be found HERE.

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

  4. This is so pretty, Marcia! Your friend will love it and knowing that you are thinking of her. I'd like a living room just like the picture! Isn't it pretty? I don't think a white couch would work here either.
