It has been a while since I've played along with the challenges at The Color Throwdown, so I was determined to remedy that this week!

Here is the gorgeous colour combination put forward for us to use on a papercraft project:

I have made a card for a lovely friend who I'll be meeting for lunch tomorrow.  Of course I left it until late in the day to photograph (forward planning is sadly lacking in my little world sometimes!!), so please forgive the dark photo.  I had a lovely time incorporating polka dots and butterflies on this card.

Stamps: Precious Butterflies
Card: Very Vanilla, Early Espresso, Regal Rose textured
DSP: Regal Rose Patterns Designer Series Paper
Ink:  Regal Rose stampin' pad and marker, Early Espresso stampin' pad and marker, Versamark inkpad
Other: Beautiful Wings embosslits die, Very Vanilla satin ribbon, Chantilly Crochet trim, Basic Pearls, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, XL Oval punch, Decorative Label punch, brad (not SU!), paper snips, sponge daubers


  1. Pretty card Christine, I am sure you lunch date will love it.

  2. And yes...I was thrilled to receive it! I now have a special box for handmade cards I am given...and Christine's beautiful creations are a special part of my much treasured collection.
