Color Throwdown card

Hi everyone!

Can't believe how fast this week has gone...Today was a special day in our house--my oldest turned 10! So, no homeschooling today. It was a relaxed day at home and hubby took the day off, too.

Tonight I was lucky enough to play a bit. And I saw the Color Throwdown site and knew I wanted to play along! Here's the color combo we had to work with:

Anyone who knows me knows that I love the colors white and black. LOVE them! But pink isn't at the top of my list of favorites...It's not at the bottom of the list--but it's definitely not at the top, either! So, I figured this was a good way to make me use pink.

Here's my card:
The pink isn't the exact match of the swatch for the site but I guess it's close enough! I used the Hero Arts stripes stamp and emboss set. So easy! And this look is so classy! I used pink dye pink to stamp it and then embossed the entire card. It's mounted on black and I added a couple of pink rhinestones. Then, I added some stamped presents (from the dollar bin) and stamped the sentiment in black. I wanted to add some flowers but just couldn't find the right color and thought it best to just leave it. It's such an elegant look--and yet so easy...

Have a great Friday!
