Color Throwdown #72

Are you ready for another Color Throwdown color challenge?

Here are this week's colors....





This week we are being sponsored by My Favorite Things Stamps...I chose an image from the new Pure Innocence line...they are sooo cute!!! Here is my card using my balloon...



I really had fun with this one! I knew I wanted to do something different with her balloon! I searched all over my studio for something that was approximate in size. I finally found it when I spied a package of glass marble magnets that I found in a dollar spot somewhere!! Not sure if it was Michaels or Target!! I simply cut off the size circle I needed and I was good to go! I filled the "balloon" with seed beads and voila...a quicky, quick shaker card!! It's hard to see my touches of read but the heart on the belt of her dress is a nail jewel in the shape of a heart. The dp is from DCWV - butterflies and blossoms. Perfect for paper piecing her dress!

I hope you will take time to visit the other CTD designers blogs...

Tammy Hershberger
Broni Holcombe
LeAnne Pugliese
Danielle Kennedy
Barbara Anders

and our guest designer for December...Carol Longacre of Our Little Inspirations.
