Hey all - I'm late as usual to the Color Throwdown challenge :P. I had the card and video done ahead of time (shocker LOL) but the voiceover had to wait as I was too tired to form a coherent thought let alone string enough words together to explain what I was doing ;).
Anywho - first off here's what we were working with this week
Gorgeous isn't it? Check out the CTD blog post HERE to see what the rest of the team came up with and to play along!
Here's what I made:
I used Simon Says Stamp You Matter Background stamp and heat embossed it with detail white embossing powder onto some Neenah Desert Storm card stock.
The flowers are from the SSS Oh Happy Day stamp set and I head embossed those as well - this time onto Distress watercolour paper. I sponged 3 different Distress inks over them then trimmed them out with scissors (would have been faster with the coordinating die set! I linked to that below).
I kept the inside of the card simple by just adding the 3 remaining flowers and that was it!
To see how this card came together check out my video below:

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favourite Things, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
Items marked with an asterisk (*) have been sent by a store/manufacturer (with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love). Everything else I purchase myself!
