Guest Designer for Color Throwdown

Hello Readers!,

I am excited to have an opportunity to design with The Color Throwdown this week! I am a regular at CTD and it is such fun to be guest designing for them. So, with further ado here is my card for today, enjoy!

Callas are such wonderful flowers. Some of you may have used them for your wedding.
I am taking some artistic license here by exaggerating the colors.
I thought it was justified because of the abstracted depiction of the flowers.
Color palette for the week of

Guest Designing for:
The color palette for this week is very subtle and just beautiful.
I thought this might be a good sympathy card or, going the polar opposite, a wedding card.
So I went with a statement instead.
Popping up the sentiment gave the card balance
and a bit of dimension.
This was my photo inspiration.
I thought the soft pink would be perfect for the challenge.
Again, I want to give a special thank you to The Color Throwdown for inviting me to join them this week. I am touched to part of such an incredible blog! I do hope you can come by and visit with them and play along. Thank you all for stopping by my little corner of the internet! I do hope you will drop back in and see what is new at TheGrandStampede. Until next time take care and happy crafting!

All the best,
