Color Throwdown Challenge #22 and Party Day #3!!

CTD22 banner

What a mouthful!  It's Wednesday, and that means Color Throwdown!  But it is also Day 3 of Sharon's Stamp Simply Celebration!  Today Joan & Jennifer are offering blog candy, and Tammy has a challenge of her own.  So check out their blogs!  Remember, anyone can play ANY of the challenges by ANY of the hostesses during our 12 days of Stamp Simply Celebrates!!! You DO NOT have to have a Blog to play — uploading your project to an online gallery is not only permissible, but HIGHLY ENCOURAGED. When doing so, use the KEYWORD SSC08. Thanks!

So the Throwdown colors today are very non-holiday, but I love these colors together!!!

I had some perfect Basic Grey Two Scoops DP in mind:

It went beautifully with SU's Pirouette Pink and Regal Rose.  My black is the ink--it's in there, I promise!    Check out my glittery bird:

So pretty IRL!  Oh, and I used Taylor's TECC#44 as my sketch--too late to submit, but a great sketch, nontheless!  Thanks for looking and I hope you can take some time from your busy schedule to play along!
