CTD256 --- Thinking of You!!

Happy Wednesday morn' folks!! Happy Hump Day!! It's time for a new set of colors at the Color Throwdown and..... here they are...


These colors made me think flowers... classic... a little elegant....


So I stamped a Serendipity Orchid image on watercolor paper and used SU inks. Added some glitter and rhinestones. The butterfly was stamped twice- one fussy cut and popped on top.


Here's a side view--- I used my Xacto knife to cut the edges of some of the orchids- shows the colored layered underneath. Just a fun little twist!

For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented August guestie - Kendra Wietstock, Kendra's Card Company!

Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun!  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD256.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  

When you are finished with your creation, head over to the Color Throwdown blog to add your entry to the Inlinkz tool.  Can't wait to see what you create! 
Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
