…Color Throwdown #100

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Verve is sponsoring this week’s Color Throwdown challenge (along with several other companies) to celebrate their 100th challenge!

Here is my card for their spectacular color combo:

card_1397 color_throwdown_swatch_100_070710I wanted to create a clean and simple layout to draw all of your attention to the focal panel.  I used the butterflies from Verve’s “Blue Skies” stamp set and the sentiment from “Always On My Mind”.  They were all stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then colored with Copic Sketch Markers.  I also added some sparkle to each one with Crystal Stickles, and pierced around the edges of the focal panel with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer.  To complete the card, I attached a Rhinestone in each of the challenge colors above the sentiment. 

That’s it for me today!  Be sure to stop over at the Color Throwdown blog to show your support and participate in this wonderful challenge!  Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with a Verve Day Thursday creation.  Until then…
