Hi stamping friends! I have some cool, fun, exciting, happy, awesome news! I was so very kindly invited to be the June Guest Designer over at the Color Throwdown Blog! Yippeeeeee! I love this blog, and I really love this talented group of crafty bloggers, and so it is my honor to stamp with them all month. Each week, on Wednesday, there is a new color challenge to play. I hope you will play along with us and enter your cards!
Here is the challenge image and the color scheme for this week:
I was having a hard time coming up with an idea... I was thinking flowers at first, but nothing grabbed me. Then I was thinking butterflies.... Then it hit me! I'll do circles! LOL. I interpreted the challenge image quite literally! Here is my card -
I embossed a bright white background with a pretty pattern... Then I found some papers in the challenge colors and made these rosettes! After messing up a bunch of them I got out the hot glue gun to adhere them together. Fabulous! No more holding them together until they dry. Why didn't I think of that sooner?
I decided to add some buttons and pearls to make it more feminine...
Here is a side view of my layering....
I'm so happy to be joining this group for June! Here are the links to the Color Throwdown team blogs. They are wonderful...just sayin'!
