Color Throwdown #57

Good Afternoon,

What to do when your having computer issues.. Stamp of course! So that's what I am doing while I figure out my issues with my laptop once more lol... I am on my husband's computer so it might take me a little longer to post but I WILL try my best to keep it going.

Now on to my little card I made. Since I was feeling in a quiet mood I thought these colors were prefect to play with over at Color Throwdown:

I'm always up to the challenge aren't you? so this is what I came up with!

I do love my textured plates and wanted to try something so I stamped the flower from Inspired by nature with the colors for this week's throwdown. I actually like the effect it gave. What do you think?

I matted the main image with Bashful Blue and then a piece of Vellum and then used my Pixie Pink Marker to color the edges and to finish it off added two little gomments and brads. I think this card would be prefect for any occasion.

As always thank you so much for stopping by.

I am still trying to learn how to work around w/my husband's computer. SHHH I had to download editing software so I work w/my cards! lol
