Color Throwdown 183 and Deconstructed Sketch 43

Saturday, March 17, 2012

I've missed my stamp room!  I've had an unusually busy week and I haven't set foot in there since Sunday! Yikes.  Fearing that my mojo would go on permanent hiatus, I got to work as soon as I could today on a card for the Color Throwdown and Deconstructed Sketch challenges.

I have a couple of confessions regarding the colors on my card.  The first is that I used Pear Pizzazz instead of Certainly Celery.  I didn't have any Certainly Celery DSP and I wanted the small tilted layer to be made from pretty paper so I chose the next best thing. Not to mention that Pear Pizzazz is "retiring" in a few short months and I'd like to use up as much of my supplies as possible (including that big button). The second confession is that I don't have any Really Rust so I substituted Cajun Craze.

So now that I've come clean, I'll say that the DSP comes from the Greenhouse Gala and Welcome Neighbor paper packs.  The layered flower is one of my faves from the Array of Sunshine stamp set.  I added a rhinestone brad in the center.  And that delightful big button is from the Spice Cake designer buttons.

I've got lots of catching up to do in my stamp room, so I'm off to get busy.  Thanks for stopping by!
