Color Throwdown August 2017 Guest Designer | CTD454

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I'm super excited to finally be able to share that I've been asked to join the Color Throwdown as their guest designer for the month of August.  Thank You ladies!!  You all know that I love challenges as they really help spark the MOJO!  I find that when something is taken out of the equation it is a lot easier to get those creative juices flow.  Picking color combos is often a stumbling point for me...not now!

 I only used the inspiration colors to create this fun card.  I used a sentiment from the Happy Mail set along with some flowers from the Pressed Flowers 2.  These sets are both by Gina K. Designs.

 Supplies Used:
Paper: Pure Luxury Card Stock - White, Grass Green & Kraft (Gina K. Designs); Stamps: Happy Mail (Gina K. Designs) & Pressed Flowers 2 (Gina K. Designs); Ink: Versamark & Grass Green (Gina K. Designs); Tools: Pressed Flowers 2 Dies (Gina K. Designs), Small & Large Rectangle Foil-Mates Die Sets (Gina K. Designs), Mini Misti, Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug), Scor-buddy, Embossing Heat Tool, Paper Trimmer (Fiskars), Big Shot (Sizzix); Other: Fine Detail White Embossing Powder (Gina K. Designs), Rhinestones, Foam Pop Dots, ATG Adhesive

Make sure to head over to the Color Throwdown blog to see what the rest of the team has created.  Hope you will get a change to play along with us!
Happy Stamping!!
