The Color Throwdown: Hugs

I am thrilled to announce that I was asked to be a guest designer at the color throwdown and just look at this fabulous color combination!

I spent some time wishing I had that living room.  Wouldn't it just make you smile to sit in that room every day?!  My house is a little on the bland side - I'm just not brave enough to put together all of those colors and patterns and have any confidence that it would look right in the end.  Besides, I can play with colors at my craft table and if I hate it, the most that I waste is a bit of cardstock!

I went to my not-yet-used stash of stamps thinking I'd go bright and graphic - just like the photo. But right away I saw some stamps that I just had to have a few months ago and I haven't used them.  It's two different sets from the same company - I love how the flowers and sentiments can be intertwined. I put the aqua in the background, colored an orange flower and added an orchid-colored hug!

I did realize as I was writing this post and saw the card and the graphic together that I'm off on the green.  Sorry!! I wish I would have noticed because I really like the green in the graphic.

If for any reason, you are not familiar with the color throwdown and the amazing design team, run right over and check them out.  There's not a week that I don't carefully study their cards and get all kinds of ideas and inspiration!

The Color Throwdown



  1. Beautiful card, Kim! The stem going through the sentiment is a great look.

  2. Your card is lovely! I like the soft
    background. I have wanted the
    Just Because set from MCT, but have
    resisted. Maybe I do need it!

  3. I love this! and THANK-YOU for joining us despite the mix up earlier this week. your card is soooo soft and pretty. I love that image.

  4. Stunning CAS design (you are a master at creating clean, less is more style cards)! Thrilled to have you guesting with us...and sorry the glitches caused a delay.

  5. I love every little thing about this card!!
