Color Throwdown 495

Hello!  Today is my last day guesting for the Color Throwdown Challenge.  It has been such a privilege to be able to guest design for this fun challenge.  Keeping to just a few colors on my cards does not come easy for me, so I greatly enjoyed being challenged outside of my comfort zone.

The colors this week are Navy, Burgundy and Gold.  I used the My Favorite Things BB Party Like a Pirate Set for my card today.  I first stamped my images onto smooth white card stock with Copic friendly black ink.  I then colored my images with Copic Sketch Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

For the shaker component of my card, I first diecut a window with the Snow Globe Die-namics.  I then added a dome shaker pouch and filled it with some Sparkling Crystals from and Buttercream Jewels.  I then added a frame with the Stitched Dome Frame Die-namics cut from a piece of Gold Sparkle Card Stock.

 Lastly, I added my entire stitched rectangle piece to an A2 top-folding card base from the same piece of Gold Sparkle Card Stock.

Here is this week's color and inspiration photo.  Head on over to the Color Throwdown Blog for more crafty inspiration and details on how to join in on this fun challenge.  Also, don't forget to check out all the amazing projects from the Color Throwdown Design Team Below!
