CTD#318



Hi everyone!!


My second post as Guest Designer at the Color Throwdown Blog .



This is the lovely inspiration photo and colours to play with this week:




This is the card I have made using some elements from the photo and the three colours:





The dp I've used are from BoBunny and Teresa Collins.
The roses and leaves stamps and dies are from PTI.  I've stamped the roses with Distress Inks.
The sentiment stamp is from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
The chevron stamp is by Verve.
Added two buttons, twine, a paper clip and some brown rhinestones and it was done.


The Design Team has made some lovely cards to inspire you!!!  Join in the fun at the Color Throwdown Blog!!!  


Have a lovely day and thanks for popping in - your visits and comments are always appreciated!!!


Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra

Such a great design, Petra! LOVE the contrast in colors, of course, but the diagonal lines in the background look fabulous, and that button in the corner is amazing! How do you keep your twine from unraveling - is it tied in one spot under the flowers and paper clip? Beautiful card (is the sene from your recent hike?) hugs, de

Beautiful card Petra. Love the gorgeous roses. They are my favorite flowers. The orange looks awesome against the blue background.

Oh, the beauty of a gently flowing stream paired with the vibrant colors of your card is truly breathtaking! I love the contrast between the shades of orange and blues! Fabulous coils of twine and bling, all so perfectly placed to create another stunning card!
