hello, beautiful...

Hello!  Hope you are having a great week!  I'm popping in with a card for my two favorite challenges:  Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches.  I will also be posting this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge and the Reverse Confetti Stock Your Stash challenge.  The colors from CTD are pretty bold and for the most part I went a bit softer with them.   This happened because I used watercolor pencils to color the Reverse Confetti Butterfly Wreath and they tend to produce a soft color value.  The wreath was stamped in VersaFine CLAIR Morning Mist.  After I finished coloring the wreath I die cut it with the matching die.  I used the RC Snow Star cover plate for the front of my card.  I was going to remove the little diamonds in the stars, but decided to keep them in place so I put a bit of washi tape behind each star and then added some additional cardstock to make the panel a little sturdier.   I adhered the panel to a white cardstock base with foam tape.  The wreath was adhered with more foam tape and then I cut thin strips of gray, bright green and white cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment in Morning Mist on the white strip and then adhered all of them per the sketch.   I finished off the card by adding lots of sparkly sequins that depending on the light look purple or fushia.



Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
