Thanks a Bunch

Good morning!

My creation today uses the Reverse Confetti Sketch and the Color Throwndown challenges - woohoo!  The color Throwdown challenge gurus have now decided to NOT add the colour names to their swatches - only the colours - great news! - I'm easily confused......

 I started with an Aquamist card base and added patterned paper from my Carta Bella - Moments and Memories 6x6 paper pad. 

Using the Tag Me, Too Confetti Cuts, I die cut a tag and added some Petals 'N Posies flowers stamped in Blueberry Sky, Enchanted Evening, Simply Chartreuse and Aquamist inks. I fussy cut the flowers and vines - believe me- right after this card I ordered the Petals 'N Posies Confetti Cuts - no more fussy cutting......yi yi yi!

I die cut the Fabulous Flamingos and popped them up onto a patterned paper circle, adding a few more fussy cut flowers.  The sentiment, also from Fabulous Flamingos, was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder.

I love sanding down the edges of this particular patterned paper - it almost looks like it adds another layer.....great trick!


 Why don't you give the Color Throwdown and SFYTT a shot this week? Fun!
