Color Throwdown #100

WOW  - Color Throwdown challenge site  is having a PARTEEE - they are celebrating 100 challenges!! We're all invited to play along and they have a large offering of goodies up for wins... Here's the #100 Color Throwdown color challenge.
This is the card I created for this challenge - I got a chance to ink up a new stamp from Stampavie that I got from Joan's Garden when I was down there for the workshop in May. It's called Olivia and her kitties Kiki and Sugar and, being the cat person that I am, I LOVED this darling image.


This is a 5x7 card - I wanted to really have this darling image (Olivia) stand out and I also wanted to use some Nesties to help bring the focus onto Olivia.  The only color I didn't own paper wise was the Baja Breeze so my Baja accents are small copic colors and the soft blue in the sky also. Oh and the pearls that I colored with Copics. My sentiment is from JustRite's Romantic Sentiments Centers.

Here's a close up.

I used my MS scoring board to create the diagonal background. Since this was 5x7 none of my Cuttlebug embossing folders were big enough to create a textured BG so I did the scoring instead.

Nesties - Labels 8 and the new Labels 10 (thank you JOAN!)

Congratulations CTD - you've done a great job of inspiring a whole bunch of us to try new and fun color combos.  Have a great week.

Hugs n Smiles,
