Color Throwdown #312


These are such unusual colors for the current Color Throwdown!  I just had to see what I could do with them.

Color Throwdown #312

I started with this trio of Hero Arts flowers, coloring them with various orange markers (the leaves are bundled sage), and fussy-cut them out.  I previewed several grey patterned papers for my vertical panel, and this one from My Mind's Eye Bramble Rose was the one I liked the best.  The black lacy edging is one of Hero Arts Scallop Borders, an older set, and the sentiment is Simon's Handwritten Sentiments.  I added some orange flower sequins from Paper Sweeties to finish.

Thanks for visiting again today......I hope to see you over the weekend for World Card Making Day festivities!
