Color Throwdown #102

DSCF8600

I am the Color Throwdown hostess this week and I chose some cool colors in an effort to offset our 90 degree temps!!! What do you think of these:

I also needed a boy baby card for a special friend and I thought these colors would be fun!

Although I used my standby, Nursery Necessities, for the sailboat image, I dipped into my new stash of fun buttons from SU---don’t they make you happy? I usually don’t like naked buttons, but I was too lazy to thread these all up, so I hope the new mom doesn’t mind! The “happy” from Define Your Life seemed an appropriate sentiment, and those little birds marching across seemed a cute little diversion to break up all the empty space! I did perch a little one atop the flag…..they are from Itty Bitty Bits. I had fun making a cloud stencil from a post-it and sponging my sky, too! This also qualifies for the Stampin Royalty challenge today: Splish Splash!

I just adore this little boat card, love your waves creation!

Love the little sailboats and the way you offset the sails. I have a suggestion - when you don't want to mess with threading your buttons, just take a black permanent marker and draw a line between the holes. It works just fine and saves ever so much time!

Otter Blue said...

This is just so cute. I love the buttons!

Sue Lelli said...
