DRS Blog Slide/Color Throwdown #121

Welcome to the DRS Designs blog slide AND the 121st installment of the Color Throwdown color challenge. Be sure to check out this link for the DRS Designs blog slide to find out how you can win some DRS Designs stamps! Be sure to read through my entire post today (don't just look at the photos ;) ) so you will know which DRS DT member blog to visit next on the blog slide. While you are "sliding", slide on over to the Color Throwdown color challenge blog and try your hand at a project using this pretty color combo...



Here is my card for the challenge and the slide...images by DRS Designs...



I just love this new shooting star image. I stamped it directly on the card and then again on scraps of the blues in the challenge. I stitched around the border line on the star with embroidery floss. I used one of the new sentiments from this release. A punched oval, a punched scallop oval and a sizzix label die and I had my focal point! Some jewels along with some stardust pen highlights on the star streams, and I was done, almost! I just had to add some ribbon and when I found a star button in my stash, I knew it would be perfect.

Thanks for checking in...there are just a couple more things you need to do. First, in order to continue on with the DRS Designs blog slide, and try for your chance at winning some stamps, you need to slide on over to Pam's blog. If you are looking for more inspiration on using the color challenge colors OR you just need more great inspiration, head on over to the Color Throwdown DT blogs.
