Changito Throws Down the Colors!



Oh my! Two posts in one day?! Yes, this working half days is the LIFE I wanna lead! :)

Have you all heard of the Color Throwdown? Apparently this is Week 29, but it's all fairly new to me. A couple of my favorite bloggers {Hi LeAnne & Tammy!} are on the "Color Throwdown Team" and I've seen some of the incredible cards they've created.

Today, when I saw the color combination it was destined that I participate! I adore this lovely trio of colors ~ kiwi kiss, regal rose and chocolate chip. As you can see, I even found a plaid designer paper in my stash that coordinated perfectly.

I thought of a couple more Valentine's that I needed to send, so I pulled out my Changito Valentine set by Stampendous and started stamping! I stamped the outside edge of the heart in regal rose and the monkey was stamped seperately with Versafine onyx black. I colored him with my Stampin' Up markers which was much faster than using the prismacolored pencils again. The "Happy Valentine's Day! sentiment on the front is a small little stamp by Dandelion Designs. This is the sentiment on the inside of the card and it's from the Changito Valentine set also...


This color challenge was FUN and hopefully I'll be able to participate again next week! That's all for today...thanks so much for blogging by!

Hi Pam! OK, my favorite exclamation bursted from my mouth when I saw this... "Oh my freakin' God!" This is FABULOUS! And how in the world did you have plaid paper that matches so perfectly! This is wonderful! So glad you made time to play!

I have not heard of the color throw down, will have to ck it out. I LOVE your card!! I just love Changito's and this is simply adorable. Someone is very lucky to be receiving this.
Wish I had 1/2 days, but I am looking forward to having Monday off (teacher in-service and Para's don't have to work Ü), I'm gonna stamp!
