Good morning!  I know . . . don’t faint . . . a post from me 3 days in a row.  Not only is today the 250th Color Throwdown, but it’s also their 5th Anniversary!  To help celebrate 5 years of color challenges, the Design Team have asked all the Alumni and former Guest Designers to participate.  I’m thrilled to be participating as a former Guest Designer.

For a list of participating Designers, as well as a list of all the prizes that are available to win, please visit the Color Throwdown Blog.   I haven’t seen the list, but I hear it’s long and fabulous!

I only had the Bermuda Bay SU ink, so I had to make substitutions for the rest:  Crumb Cake – Vintage Photo Distress; Melon Mambo – Picked Raspberry Distress; So Saffron – Scattered Straw Distress.


The background of the image was water colored with Bermuda Bay.  The image (old SU Inspired by Nature) was colored with Distress Markers in Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo.  Picked Raspberry was added to the flower with a water brush.  The image was misted with water and then stamped on the background.  The old SU Background Scratched, was stamped over the image in Vintage Photo.

The front panel was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders® A2 Matting Basics B and the card base with die cut with A2 Matting Basics A.  The seam binding was dyed and the sentiment was stamped with Bermuda Bay.    The sentiment was then die cut/embossed with Charmed I’m Sure.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the hop!
