Color Throwdown & Viva La Verve July Week One!

Hello out there....Today I wanted to share a card that I was inspired by two different challenges. The Color Throwdown Challenge, and the Viva La Verve July Week One at Splitcoast Stampers.

First of all, the sketch this week at the Verve Forum is great. The challenge is posted every Friday and you have all month to play along. There is a prize at the end of the month, that is totally worth taking the time to ink up some paper.

The next challenge was one that I stumbled upon yesterday for the first time. Yesterday was the 100th, Color Challenge. The colors are awesome!!! Certainly Celery, Real Red, Baja Breeze and Regal Rose. I love all the light colors in that palette, but never would have thought of the red. Nice job Color Throwdown. Here is my card:

Here is are the supplies I used to make the card:
Card Dimensions: 4.25x5.5
Card Stock: Certainly Celery, Real Red, Regal Rose, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up)
Stamps: Labels #5 (Waltzing Mouse Stamps); Fringed Phrases (Close To My Heart); Rockstar (Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Collection)
Ink: Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Real Red, Regal Rose (Stampin' Up)
Embossing Folders: Stars & Scroll Work (Cuttlebug)
Dies: Label #5 Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Bird & Butterfly Punch (Stampin' Up)
Extras: Liquid Pearls (Ranger), Ribbon (Stampin' Up); Rhinestones (Joann's)

Thank you for stopping by today and taking a peek at my card. You should take the time to partcipate in each of these challenges. There are great prizes to be one for each!!!

Have a super day!!!
