It's a Heatwave!

This week at Tuesday Throwdown our theme is "Heatwave" - use "HOT" colors.  We are sponsored by http://www.winniewalter.com/  and I've used their awesome stamp set "In Bloom:  Shirley's Blooms" to make a 50th anniversary card:

The background paper is from a 4.5 x 6.5 Die Cuts With a View pack called "Pocket Full of Posies".  I've had this pack for YEARS!  I think I mentioned in another post that I pulled out a pile of 4.5 x 6.5 and 6x6 pads that I've had forever and very seldom use.  I've committed to using them for my cards as much as possible, so here's 2 now.  Wow...really getting after that stack, aren't I?  

Anyway....the white diecut is a Spellbinder's die and the pink diecut is a Cricut cut, circle doily from the Edge to Edge cartridge set.  I've added some clear "Raindrops" and "Iridescent Bubbles" from Studio Katia for a little sparkle.  

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you'll join us this week!

Color Inspiration at Tuesday Throwdown

Good morning!  This week at Tuesday Throwdown we are sponsored by


and we have a color inspiration challenge.

Recently I dug out all of my 6x6 and 4x6 paper, stacked it up and resolved to use it!  I actually found a sheet in that stack with all of these colors in it!

The image is from our sponsor and called "Perfect Poppies".  These colors look so much better in real life!  

Pretty simple, but sweet.  Thanks for stopping by!
