Color Throwdown #474

Hi Everbody,

I saw Michele Ferguson's card on Instagram and knew I had to play along with Color Throwdown this week. thank you Michele, you are such an enabler!


I pulled out my neglected Winter Woods set from Papertrey to make this card.
The birds are a little tricky to stamp - as most layering stamps are, but I managed.

This is this weeks amazing inspiration picture:


As you can see, I basically just copied it.....I popped up the birds with foam tape and added Washi on the side.


Those are unusual colors for me, since I generally like it bright and colorful, but I am always up for a good challenge!

Linking up with:

Seize the Birthday - anything birthday
The House that Stamps Built - things with wings

Bin ich wirklich auf Cornelia's blog? Wo sind die knalligen Farben??? Nun mal ehrlich - hat es weh getan, mit dieser neutralen Palette zu arbeiten? ;) Du hast es jedenfalls geschafft und die Karte sieht sehr schön aus! Mein Kompliment!

Boy, this is a departure from your style but, nonetheless, it is gorgeous. Restful and you've lined up the layers perfectly. After seeing Michele's entry, I can definitely see how your were inspired. Think yours looks amazing.
