Color Throwdown 427


Hey Friends, I love the colors in the Color Throwdown Challenge this week so I had to play. I could have made a baby card but I need to beef up my birthday card stash. I used Lawn Fawn Year Six stamp, colored with Copics and fussy cut out. I used matching distress ink to stamp the hearts. 

I added a little pearl to play in the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 391 AND it's just too cute to put a pearl in an oyster. (I guess it's an oyster?) Wplus9 Sunshine Layer dies were used for the mats, plus I added in an extra one which I trimmed on my trimmer and rounded the corners. 

Below is the first card I made for the challenge but although I like it, It wasn't what I had in mind for the challenge. I call it the "old way" of my card making, and the card with the shells is a more modern way.(?) At first I wasn't going to share it but then I decided that there's nothing wrong with this style card, just different. P.S. I used Mojo Monday Sketch 481.

  7. Hahahahaha! Maybe I'm easily amused, but I laughed out loud at the image and sentiment combo on your first card. So cute! Love that you added the pearl, too. Interesting that you mention and show the new way and the old way. Lately I feel that I'm having trouble finding my "way". I can't figure me out.
