CTD 295- Smiles!

Good Morning!! This is my second post of the day... please scroll down to see my Serendipity Stamps Challenge.

This bright and beautiful spring... well, maybe summer colors for the Color Throwdown are brought to us by Joan. Is that not a fabulous quilt!! I have a couple that were made by Bill's grandma and they are gorgeous!

Gorgeous... perfect for the ombre look... or a graphic design... now why didn't I think of that before?

Two colors that scare me... purple and burgundy. Just. being. honest. I've been working on the purple thing so... today is the day to get over burgundy!

The June Guest Designer Susie Moore. You can find Susie at The Dies Have It.

Our Guest Star Stamper this week is Diane Jaquay at Peaceful Lane.

So Happy to have you both with us this week!!

Love the bold black surrounding the sentiment and great idea to use that flower for the tab and grung stamp for the BG. Lovely job with this :)

So pretty Vickie! Love the big blossom!

Wanda Cullen said...

Yep...burgundy is a tough one for me as well! This turned out beautifully and I'm glad to see someone else using black with these colors. :-)

It turned out beautifully! Burgundy in papercrafting is a bit of a scary color for me too!

Joan Ervin said...

Glad you conquered you fears, Vickie, because this turned out beautifully!!!!! Love the awesome sketch, too, and your flower is sooo pretty!!!
