Color Throwdown Wednesday!!!

Hieeeee!! I am so excited to be here for the Color Throwdown today! I feel like I'm getting back into my groove of stamping again! Yahoo!!!

This week our friend and fellow designer Carole Burrage will not be joining us. She experienced a loss in her family this week so I went right up to my room and made my card for her this week.

Bar picked these WONDERFUL colors for us to play with this week. Have a peek...

And here's what I made....

I whipped out my Acorn die and stamp set again but chose to show it in a more elegant way by adding a woodgrain texture to the bottom and a button with twine as an accent. I also created my sentiment panel by using my Sentiment Flags die and stamp set.

You can check out both of these sets at out at Lil' Inker Designs!

I hope you'll join us this week! Don't forget to check out all the deets at the Color Throwdown Blog. AND please don't forget to stop by and check out the inspiring designs from our design team members to get your creative mojo flowing!
