Pretty Penny

Have you seen all the fun stuff going on over on the Color Throwdown blog? They're celebrating 100 color challenges! Wowee!!!!! They are giving away over $1700.00 dollars worth of amazing prizes! The fun all started yesterday and you can bet I wanted in on it.

I'm new to this challenge, I mean I had heard about it before, but this is the first time I've joined in. Here's how it works: each week there's a new color combo and you make a card or project based on those colors. You don't even have to be exact which is good for me cause I didn't have all of them and had to improvise.

Here is my submission for this weeks color throwdown.

I stamped the flowers first and masked them and stamped the flowers in the background over them. I then colored them using Copics. I love these Penny Black flowers in red, don't you?

I then punched the image out using my oval nestie and sponged around the flowers.

I paired the image with various DP's from Marks Papers Company and MME.

I thought I was finished before I added the squares at the bottom but it just looked like it needed a little something more. I rummaged through my buttons and came up with these cute little ladybug buttons. Just a few snips with my scissors and some glue and they became the icing on the cake, so to speak. I think it was meant to be.

Time for me to get off this crazy contraption and check on the boy child to see if he's okay! He's always been an early riser but has taken to sleeping in this summer. Ahhhhhh! To be a teenager again and sleep as late as you want! Wait!!!! Did I just say I wanted to relive my youth? That's just crazy talk!!! I guess I've forgotten all the other stuff that went along with being a teen. No thank you!!! I'll just keep things as they are!

You all have a terrific day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
