Color Throwdown #58

Welcome back to another Color Throwdown color challenge! This week's colors were chosen by Barbara and they are..



This week we are being sponsored by Denise January an SU! demo! Please visit the CTD blog for more info on Denise and the prize she is offering to one lucky winner!

Here is my creation using an old SU! favorite Bud Basics!



I stamped the buds in chocolate chip ink, masking the images as I went along. I used a craft knife the cut the inner spaces. The rose panel is raised on pop dots. Some antique brass brads are the flower centers. The inner flower on the rose panel was stamped with Versamark Dazzle/frost ink. The smaller flower in the set was stamped in versamark on the artichoke panel, again stamping the solid flower with versamark dazzle. I used an EK Success border punch on the white and artichoke panels. Some chocolate grosgrain ribbon and a clear button finish things off.

Be sure to stop by the CTD blog and visit the other designers blogs to see their awesome creations...
