Color Throwdown 150

Isn't this a lovely color combo! - It's my 1st time playing with the Color Throwdown but I thought I'd give it a try.

Here is what I came up with:

My card is based on a card by Alice Wertz found here


I used an old SU set, Petal Prints to create my background.
The (Taken With Teal) color presented a bit of a problem but I decided on just adding subtle touches of it. I dyed some white pearls with a Teal Copic Marker and also stamped the sentiment with TWT ink. The butterflies were die cut with an A.Muse|Studio butterfly die. I stamped the small pink butterflies on Pretty in Pink cs and then stamped them with the flower image in Rose Red ink. I love how they turned out.
Stamps: Petal Prints, Sweet Little Sentiments, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Card Stock: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla
Ink: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Taken With Teal, River Rock
Punch: Eyelet Border, Word Window-SU
Swiss Dot Embossing Folder-Cuttlebug
Distressing Tool
Pearls-A.Muse
Copic Marker
