Celebrating 100 Challenges!


Wow! That's a lot of Color Throwdown Challenges!  Definitely something worth celebrating in a big way, and let me tell you, this party is B.I.G!  The list of sponsors is a mile long!  You've just GOTTA join in the fun!

Here are the colors for this week's historic challenge! Two harmonizing prints from Basic Grey's recently released 6 x 6 Olivia designer paper pad made it easy to bring these colors together.  Using red chalk ink, I stamped a sentiment from Hero Arts onto a nesties label, sponged the edges, matted and framed it with some white Zva pearl "hugs" and and additional pale green pearl accents.  The pretty bow is tied using May Arts' two-toned textured rose/pink ribbon and a Bow Easy, then topped with a small button.

This sentiment works for all kinds of occasions!  I adore the chintz-and-picnic-plaid look of these papers, and the purely girlie-romantic yet not actually Valentine feel of this card.  That's because I love pink!  I hope you like it too!

Be sure to visit the Color Throwdown blog for all the details about playing this week's challenge.  Tell 'em Deb sent you!  ;)
