Just a bit excited!!!


So why am I excited??? I have been asked to be the guest designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge for the Month of January!!! When I found out (and I have had to keep it to myself for a while now) I just about danced a jig!! So here are the colors that were called for:

Along with the color combo that I was also given the option of using some fantastic digi papers from My Time Made Easy. I decided that I just had to use them because they were so fantastic and fun. So here is my card showcasing one of the designs from the Shutterfly pack. The cool thing about this weeks Color Throwdown challenge is that we are giving away 2 prizes--come play along you could be a winner!! This great digi paper could be yours!!


Great digi paper to go along with this weeks color combo of Dusty Durango, Regal Rose, and Choc. Chip. I decided to change things up a bit a go with a shaped card--I used the Nessties Labels. I cut out one in Whisper White and one in Choc. Chip. I scored the top of the white one and then glued them together just above the score line so that the card opens with ease. My stamps are from the New Occasions Mini that just came out from Stampin Up. I actually used two of the new sets: Tiny Tags and Vintage Vogue. The Tiny Tags set fits perfectly in the new Mini tag punch--those the little charm tags hanging off of the "F". I used my new Janome (Christmas present from my DH) to add alittle texture. My "F" was stamped twice--once one background and then once on Regal Rose Cardstock. I cut out the the Regal Rose one and layered it on top using Deminsionals. I stamped, punched out, and sponges my little mini tags and then tied them into place using Linen thread. Here is a close up:
So there you have it, my first card as guest desginer for Color Throwdown Challenge. What an honor it is to be asked to work along side these great group of talented ladies. I am looking forward to what January has to offer!! Thanks to the Color Throwdown team for this opportunity!!
