My entry for Color Throwdown # 44

It's been quite a while since I did one of the Color Throwdown challenges, but I really needed some incentive and challenges help me lots. This is for Color Throwdown #44.



This week's colours are: Bordering Blue, Elegant Eggplant and Barely Banana. I was fortunate enough to have all the colours and was eager to participate. The stamp set is SU's Woodland Cottage. I've had it for quite a long time, but don't use it often enough. As you can see the base is Bordering Blue. I used my newest Nestabilities, Labels Four, cutting them out in Elegant Eggplant and Barely Banana. The stamping was done with Elegant Eggplant ink. I added some flowers and a little flower crystal in the centre.

As the sentiment does not indicate any type of occasion, I would like your suggestions as to when you would use such a card. Just curious to see what you all would do with it. Thanks for looking.

Barb, I see lots of opportunities to use this beautiful card. A housewarming jumps into my mind, as does a "thinking of you" card for anyone who makes things - builders, architects, artists, needleworkers, designers and crafters of all sorts would enjoy this sentiment.
