Color Throwdown 217




First, a big thank you to all the veterans out there. My dad is one, so I have a special place in my heart for those men and women who have served their country so selflessly.

Had a busy morning at church today. I teach the littlest ones in Sunday school, and they are so cute and so eager, and boy, do they tire me out! We have a wonderful newly-formed women's group at church, and it's great to see what's coming up through this group. New Bible studies, gatherings, projects.... Can I just say I love my church?!! Naturally, God is first, but this community of believers is like having another family who loves you, teases you, encourages you, consoles you, and lifts you up. I pray you all have a community like this wherever you are.

I made a card for Color Throwdown #217, and they have an incredible color palette this week:



And here's my take:


The cardstock is all Bazzill, the rosette is LYB Blue Reverie, the other blue patterned paper is from a 6x6 MME pad. SU ink, stamp and white ribbon, random blue ribbon, and the bling, which isn't showing up very well, is Webster's Sparklers. I love rosettes, don't you?!! Happy dances.

Hey Bev. Geri here again (Manitoba Stamper). I would love to follow your blog - do you have a follow by e-mail feature? I see a Follower section but nothing seems to load. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi Geri, I added a follow by email, and will reboot my computer to see if that will then allow followers. Hope that helps!

Great color choices Broni! Fun to play along.

Thanks for adding the "Follow by E-mail" feature. I just completed my subscription. Also, in my haste to get signed up as a follower, I neglected to tell you that this card is stunning. Love the pop of neon green.

I REALLY admire anyone who can make those rosettes stick together!

A stunning birthday card with those colors and that rosette. I love the shade of green to choose to go with the deep blue, just beautiful.

Thanks Geri. So glad you can follow my blog. And as much as I hate to admit, the glue gun is the secret to making rosettes stick together. Can't stand waiting for the darn thing to heat up, but that's what works. ; )

Kind of you to say, Kim. Those two shades remind me of one of my favorite sweaters and all the good memories associated with it. It's a happy card for me.
