Quilted Color Throwdown

Card number two for the OWH Virtual Card Making Party combines OWH Challenge #1: Sketch with this week's Color Throwdown.

(Update:  Ooops!  Just linked this up to discover that it was supposed to be a Christmas/Winter themed card using the OWH Sketch.  Oh well...)

My colors are all CTMH: Cotton Candy, Sunset, Blush, Sweet Leaf, and Buttercup

I used a CM punch for my inch squares.  To make sure I had them on straight, I drew a couple lines on my 4"x5.25" panel.  The horizontal line was at 3.75" and the vertical line was at 2".  I put down my middle Sunset polka dot piece first and worked out from there.  This pattern was just begging for some top stitching and a custom dyed ribbon using Blush re-inker and Tim Holtz Crinkle Ribbon.

Since this is for OWH, I stamped "Miss You" from Verve's Friendly Phrases in Momento Tuxedo Black.  I inked right over the top of my stitching and it worked fine.  Whew!!

Really happy with how this turned out.  Off to see what's next on over at the OWH party!!

Until next time,
