My Last Week......


Well, this is my last week as guest designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge. It has been so much fun creating along side these super talented women. What a honor it has been. So here is what I came up with for this weeks color combo: Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, and Elegant Eggplant. I decided to make my card using the Top Note Die--I cut out two of them, scored one across the top so that it would open easily, glued the two pieces together and there you have a Top Note shaped card. My background is some Baja Breeze DP that I still had in my stash. I cut along the edge so that it would fit on the base, creating a layer. I then stamped flourishes using Elegant Eggplant ink with stamps from Stampin Up's Priceless set. My flower was created using ribbon pieces cut about an inch long--I folded then and help them in place with a glue dot and then I attached them to the cirlce I stamped and then punched out (the stamp was also from the Priceless set) The center of the flower is a Baja Breeze Corduroy button. The leaves are punched out with the MS fern punch and of course they are punched out using Certainly Celery. The sentiment is stamped in Elegant Eggplant and then punched out using the small oval punch and then layer on matching card stock--the sentiment is from the SU set Small Script. Thanks for stopping by and having a look. I will miss being on the design team as a guest but you will still find my creations there......just look for debhorst in the Mr. Linky list.
