Color Throwdown 142

I am in love with the colors this week at the Color Throwdown

I managed to score an entire unopened package of Kiwi Kiss cardstock from someone who wanted to get rid of it so, of course, that's what I chose for my green.  I won't need to hoard my previously-dwindling stash of that color for a while now!

I thought that the FTL sketch was pretty interesting so I chose that for my layout.  In fact, this is the second time this week that I made a card this size.  There must be something in the air!

And I got to try a new technique with my card.  Take a look.

I think it shows up a little better at this angle.  It's the faux mother of pearl technique, which I learned at Stamping 411.

It's hard to see in these pictures, but it's quite pearly and shiny!  I really have no idea if lime green mother of pearl exists in real life, but I really wanted to try this technique and I was already using lime green, so the two worlds have collided here!  It was very simple to do and I plan to do it again for a wedding card I'm thinking of.  Stay tuned for that one!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week.  Be sure and check out the cards from the design team.  Loads of inspiration there!
