Happy Anniversary

Hi Friends, I am thrilled to be asked to Guest Star for The Color Throwdown Challenge!

 They provided a elegant, colorful floral color palette and inspiration photo to work with. You've got to play this week!

I had to pull out my WPlus9 Ranunculus stamp set. The golden flatware inspired me to gold heat emboss my image and I colored the blooms with Copic markers. I used more gold powder to heat emboss the Verve sentiment. (The inside says ...a happy anniversary). The Pretty Pink Posh scalloped frame was die cut with gold foil cardstock. I added a few tiny black splatters and sparkling clear sequins to finish it. 

My in-laws our celebrating 70 years married next week! I was thrilled to use the Color Throwdown #558 to make their card. 

Make sure you check out the design teams' cards as well. Thanks for stopping by!

Thinking of you

Hmmmm. Do I remember how to do a blog post? It's been months Friends! 

I had won this Simon says Stamp Stamp and die set months ago and never inked it up. It's called Delicate Flowers (click the name for a link) It's really beautiful and has wonderful sentiments. I edited this card photo on my phone for Instagram so the colors are a bit dull, sorry! My Instagram account is @kjl571. 

I'm playing in a few challenges with this card and had them all in mind while creating. 
First was the Color Throwdown 556 . I knew I wanted to color the flower yellow so the colors were perfect for this. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens or whatever they are called! HaHa.
Next I wanted to use the 400th sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. The sky is the limit with this sketch. I sponged my background on Bristol with Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire.

 Then added some Mermaid Lagoon Spatters and some water spots. The third challenge is the SSS Instagram challenge which I can't link but this fits the SSS Wed. Challenge Mid-Summer Blues so it's all good.

I hand cut a flag banner and stamped the sentiment, added a few sequins and called it done. 
Thanks for visiting!
