Color Throwdown # 25

Oh my heavens, two posts in one day. I was really thrilled to see the colour choices for today Color Throwdown # 25. Thrilled because, not only are they gorgeous, but I had all three colours! When all the stars align, what can a girl do but PLAY!!!

Upon waking this morning, I had an idea for a stamped image, I just didn't know how I was going to work it onto a card. The stamp was sent to me by Cindi, one of my fellow Shackies. I was randomly chosen as the winner for a goodie package when I visited her blog for the World Open House back in December. The package contained this stamp and another cute little frog with a crown and other stuff, but I had an idea for the Tree stamp. I stamped the tree in black and then masked it. I stamped it twice more using Grey Flannel ink by CTMH. While I was blurfing, I saw the Color Throwdown # 25 challenge and things started to gel in my head. I knew I wanted to put ornaments on the tree so I rummaged through my stash and found these transparent buttons. I had blue ones, green ones, but no orange ones. There were however, clear ones, so I grabbed my trusty Copic marker in Orange and started colouring the clear buttons and soon they were orange. Now I could put my card together for the CT #25. I searched for more embellies and found the pins that I stuck into the ribbon, added three Antique brads and took a picture of my creation. Hope you all like it.
