Color Throwdown #306- Celebrate

Good Morning!! Welcome to the next Color Throwdown challenge. Fun colors and inspiration pic brought to us by Cindy this week!!

Was a "little" nervous at first ! (I am not good at using purple by itself or with anything, LOL!) but, these colors are fabulous!! Should've known... look at those yummy treats!

I chose to work with this fabulous image from Verve Stamps' latest release- Happy Place. Started out with the idea to use the Viva la Verve week 3 sketch but, after I stamped the background and colored with copics.... I just didn't want to cover it up!! The flowers from Happy Place were die cut with Verve's Happy Doodles dies and the sentiment-Moments Remembered.

Our August Guest Designer is Jodi Collins from Stampin a Latte!

Kirsty McIntyre is our Guest Star Stamper - Purple Place Designs. Thrilled to have you joining us!
