Color Throwdown July Guest Designer



Good morning!  Great news...I will be Guest Designer over at the Color Throwdown for the month of July!  I have been playing along with this cool challenge for years, so I'm honored with the invitation to join the design team this month!  Today's challenge, CTD249, calls for some festive colors that are perfect for a tribute to the 4th of July holiday!  


I used an adorable Lollipop image from By LORi Designs called Independence Julie...how sweet is she waving the American flag and dressed up for the occasion?!  There's a new challenge over at By LORi Designs today, too...BLD #50:  Summer Fun:)


Not only did the beautiful inspiration photo and color scheme from Color Throwdown inspire my card...the Mojo Monday Sketch #300, Ribbon Carousel #83: Celebrate Your Heritage, Simon Says Stamp: Patriotic, and CAS-ology: Fireworks helped a little, too! 

 

I colored up the BLD image with Copic markers and layered her up on some fun papers, Fancy Pants Down by the Shore that I got from the i {heart} papers store!  After adding a doily, seam binding, button, twine and a little bit of Stickles, this feminine card is complete!

Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
