Color Throwdown Wednesday

Hi there!!! It's Color Throwdown Wednesday and this week I'm your hostess! I chose a palette inspired by the Lime Twist papers from My Mind's Eye called Life of the Party. Have a look....

I actually went in a bit of a pastel or muted take on these colors. Here's my card.

I never like to post feeling like I didn't present my BEST work. Can I please just tell you that this might be the worst photo I've ever taken and this is so much cuter in person!! Do I always say that? HA! Last Minute Laura here did this project Tuesday night and photo'd it in the dark which NEVER makes for a good photo for me. I will try and re photo it in the morning for you if I can.

I love an out of the box use for any die, but ESPECIALLY dies from Lil' Inker Designs. When I saw Kristin Eberline make THIS card, I knew I had to give this technique a try. Yep, that's right....the flowers petals are made using our Rainbow die! It's super simple too. I cut two small rainbows from the die. Then I just used a mini glue dot to adhere the ends of 5 *bows* together individually and then formed into a flower. To make the petals slightly more uniform I just made the petals smaller and snipped off any extra.

I hope you'll play along this week! It's fun and easy to do. Just visit the Color Throwdown Blog for all the details.
