Color Throwdown 176 and Viva la Verve

Friday, January 27, 2012

I started making a Valentine's Day card for the Color Throwdown challenge, but I wasn't happy with how it turned out, so I turned it into a birthday card with a flower.  Shocking, I know.

I love this flower from Array of Sunshine.  It's perfect for fussy-cutting and layering.  I stamped it twice in Rose Red then cut out different sizes and layered them together.  The leaf from the same set is stamped in Crumb Cake and then rock-n-rolled on the edges with a bit of Chocolate Chip.  The colors are a little bit non-traditional for a leaf, but I think it looks pretty good (and I don't have to step outside the precept of the color challenge).  My layout is courtesy of one of the January Verve sketch challenges.

Thanks for stopping by!
