Color Throwdown #89

Woohoo!  I am the hostess for today’s CTD, and these are the colors I have chosen:

swatch 89

My inspiration was some beautiful Wisteria paper from Basic Grey; so many yummy patterns from which to choose!  Be sure to check back on the CTD blog for all the participation details and play along with us…I would love to see what beautiful creations you can come up with using these colors!  And of course, they’re ALL retiring, so let’s give them some love! 

I needed a get well card for a sweet friend who recently had some surgery, so this is what I made for her:


I remembered some stamps I had from Starving Artiststamps, these cute little dragonflies, and I thought they would be perfect for this card, which also uses the Unscripted Sketch #51 for this week:


They are stamped in SU’s Basic Gray and colored with Copics;  I added some bling to them:


and I pierced the bottom of the card freehand, following the scallops….I thought it came out pretty good!  Oh, I added some bling there too:


And the inside, with a sentiment from Waltzingmouse:


Thanks for visiting today!  Be sure to stop by the other designers’ blogs for more creations using these colors:

If you have any questions about anything used here, please send me an email! Have a blessed day!
