Color Throwdown #78

swatch 78 Broni is the CTD hostess this week with this lovely color combination!  And be sure to check the CTD blog for a sweet little surprise!!!  Feel free to play along with us, using these colors or something close….when you’ve posted it on your blog, or an online gallery, please link it with Mr Linky so we all can see what you’ve created!

I struggled at first with these images, and wasn’t really happy with my first card, so I set it aside and started again.  Despite the fact that I stamped my center sentiment a tad bit crooked, I still like it:

The images and sentiments are all from Starving Artistamps; the butterflies are stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with black EP, then colored with Pink Pirouette and Soft Sky reinkers.  I stamped the “Faith Hope Love” across the Kraft Top Note with Creamy Caramel, then stamped the main sentiment in Stazon.  Some pink & blue twill “tied” it all together!  I hope you like it….now check out what the other CTD artists have come up with this week:

Oh, and here’s my first attempt, which also uses the Fall to Layout Sketch #76:

Not quite so spiffy…..I do LOVE this sketch, however….so you may see it again soon!!!  Thanks for visiting today!
