Guesting over at Color Throwdown!

Happy new year everyone!  I'm starting off the year by guesting over at one of my favorite challenges:  Color Throwdown!   The color palette today is absolutely fabulous one of yellow, green, black and white.  Isn't that inspiration photo gorgeous!?  I pulled out a stamp and die set that I recently purchased from Altenew called Always There to create my card.  I also used the layout from Fab Friday so I will be adding my card to their gallery.  I started by stamping the flowers and leaves in black ink and then adding in the details using only two of the layering stamps from the set.  I really like the way the flowers and leaves turned out.  I die cut everything with the matching dies.  I used an AJVD circle die to cut my circle from black cardstock and then layered up the flowers and leaves.  Per the sketch my rectangle behind the circle was cut from silver glitter cardstock.  I die cut white cardstock with an AJVD rectangle die and then layered everything on a light gray cardstock base.  I finished by stamping the sentiment in black ink on white cardstock, trimming it down and adhering it to the flowers.  I just discovered that the challenge over at SIP is thank you so I'm going to add my card to their line up.






Hope you have a wonderful day and take the time to play along with Color Throwdown this week!
