Color Throwdown #429-Today I will choose Joy

It's been quite a while since I have participated in any type of challenge, but I really love doing them! This week's Color Throwdown challenge popped up in my Instagram feed from a few of my designer friends so I decided to play along. The colors were not that enticing to me, but that's when I feel the most challenged! Ha ha! The colors are teal, orange and black and any neutrals that you want. I did sneak in a hint of green, but I think of green as a neutral anyway. The inspiration photo had a fabulous black and white rug and I was happy to incorporate the stripes into my design as well. I watched a few Tim Burton films over the weekend and I think it inspired me as well! LOL!



I dry embossed the black base panel with a floral embossing folder, but it's hard to see that in the photo. It adds just the right touch. All of the flowers were diecut and rolled using a quilling tool and adhered with hot glue. The orange was feeling too harsh on the card, so I added some white ink to the top edges which softened it just the right amount. 





The sentiment is stamped using Cotton White StazOn ink onto a strip of vellum. I really like how it softens the starkness of the black and white striped paper. I added a few crystal clear sequins and a bow of black baker's twine to finish up the design. Thanks for futtering by! Follow me on Instagram @kelly lunceford

Hi Kelly! This is such an awesome card. I love how dramatic the colors are with the black. Just this morning I was telling Kellan that he had the power to decide whether he was going to have an awesome day or not. I might need to make him a little sign with this sentiment on it as a reminder. :)
