Color Throwdown # 31

Hello everyone,

Another day, another challenge ! I just missed the deadline on this Color Throwdown one but thought I would show you what I created.

The challenge was to use SU Colours - Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss and Night of Navy and as we
don't have Kiwi Kiss here yet in Australia, I substituted some DS paper with a print in So Saffron for this colour.

I embossed the Bashful Blue card then wrapped a cream/gold ribbon around it before attaching it to the Night of Navy base card.

I then cut a piece of Le Jardin DS paper (florals) and navy card and punched a scallop edge on each with the SU Scallop Border punch then mounted them over the ribbon and embossed panel.

Using another piece of the DS paper (So Saffron print) and some more of the navy card, I punched a scallop circles of each with the SU punch, backed the printed circle with the navy one and positioned it to give just a hint of a 'shadow' .

I then applied a rub-on greeting and some flowers to the front and then attached it to the card using SU Dimensionals.

To finish off, I attached a small ribbon bow and some pearls.

SU Supplies:

Cardstock - Night of Navy, Bashful Blue

Paper - Le Jardin (Designer Series)

Punches - Scallop Border, Scallop Circle

Rub-Ons - Eastern Elegance


Ribbon, adhesive pearls.

I managed to make another card for this week's challenge - check out my next post for that one.
