Hello for Color Throwdown 496

Hello friends.  I made a card for my sister using this week's Color Throwdown colors.  Blue is my favorite color and I think it is striking with black and white.
For my card I used the flowers from SU Flourishing Phrases and stamped it 4 times in MFT Blue Raspberry ink.  I fussy cut the center layers on 2, added a pearl to the centers and mounted them with foam tape.  I stamped the background with SU Gorgeous Grunge and Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamped off once for a lighter touch.  The pattern paper is an older sheet I had and I don't know who it is by.  I added punched scallop borders in black.  The black flourishes are from MFT Simple Leaf Flourish.  Finally, I added Impression Obsession Hello die (#DIE174-W).

Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping


  1. What a lovely card- your sister will love it! So happy you joined us at CTD!

  2. Great use of these colors and pretty blue flowers, JoAnn!

  3. your card is gorgeous and how you were able to do the grunge and have it work so well with the overall look!

  4. I have both of these stamp sets and yet your card turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined! I'm now going to copy it, ok??

  5. Your sister will feel like she's been visited by the florist when she gets this card, JoAnn! I love the layout and schplatters and think the flowers are SO lovely in the blue! Hugs, Darnell
