Thanks so much for all your sweet comments on my orange birds card yesterday – I think I will keep it and write the little experience with PrincessA on the inside and keep it in my craft room, for memory’s sake. 😉
Today, I’m sharing a card I made for the Color Throwdown #173 challenge, but apparently I missed the entry deadline. Oops! Lucky you, you get to see it anyway!
I don’t mind the red/white/black color combo in general, but I often don’t know what to do with it. The combo seems to call for something dramatic, and I’m not really sure how well I do dramatic… outside of dealing with everyday life – LOL!
But here is what I created:
I finally received my PTI package with the Love and Marriage stamp set, so I broke that out (barely – haha!) for this card. I tried using some of the other stamps for elements on the card, but I just didn’t like how they turned out. I did use my Mehndi and Mega Mehndi Medallion sets, as well. The rhinestones here look a tad bit orange, but they are actually red in real life. And that teeny little one at the bottom obviously had a little slippage while I had my head turned, silly little thing.

After nearly completing the card, I looked at the Color Throwdown graphic as an afterthought, and noticed that grey or silver was included in the colors. So I added a grey/silver-ish shimmer cardstock mat layer and used a metallic pen to color in a few spots on the large medallion. It’s very rudimentary coloring, but at least there’s a little grey now!
