guesting with color throwdown!!

Hello friends!!!  Happy Wednesday!!  Stopping in with my card for the new Color Throwdown!! Lucky me... I'm the guest designer this week!!  YAY!!   And of course, the color combo is just gorgeous!!  For my card I pulled out my never been used My Favorite Things Sketch Blooms 2 stamp set.  I stamped the stems for the flowers using SU!'s Pear Pizzazz.  For the magenta flowers I used SU!'s Rich Razzleberry and did generational stamping.  I started by inking up the large solid image and then stamped it off twice to get the pale color. The smaller solid image was inked up and stamped off once before stamping and then the outline image was stamped using the ink at full strength.  Love how the flowers turned out.  The yellow flower was stamped with Close to My Heart Sunflower.  I inked up the solid image, stamped it off once and then stamped.  The outline was stamped at full strength.  I filled in the scene with a leafy stem that was inked with Pear Pizzazz, stamped off and then stamped for a lighter green.  Added in some little flowers with the yellow and magenta inks.  The die cut hello is an MFT die and was die cut from vellum three times, stacked and then adhered to the card.  For a little more interest I cut strips of cardstock in the same colors and adhered them behind the image panel.   I'm also adding this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.

Wishing you a lovely day... hope you will play along with Color Throwdown this week!  I have a giveaway going on here... click over and leave a comment for a chance to win a stamp set!
