Color Throwdown Special Wishes Card

I was so honored to be chosen as a Color Throwdown Featured Stamper. This week I get to be a Guest Designer over at Color Throwdown, where they always have gorgeous color inspiration challenges. This week's challenge is pink, yellow and gray, and I've chosen Bashful, Canary, and Pebble inks for my card creation.
I'm still playing with the September special stamp set, so this is also a sneak peek post of a set that's not quite yet available. I stamped the Bashful CS background with the So HAPPY for You sentiment repeatedly in Bashful ink. Then I embossed another panel of Bashful CS with a big dot folder. I used the back/lighter side of the cardstock for these pieces. I matted my embossed panel onto some Canary Fundamentals patterned paper with a subtle stripe and tore the bottom edge.  
I handcut a white tag that I outlined with a hand dotted outline. I double stamped the Special Thoughts & Wishes sentiment in Canary yellow and Pebble Gray. Then I stamped the sentiment again on scrap white cardstock so I could trim out the smaller words and accent them by sponging the edges with Bashful ink. I colored the Pebble stamped floral image with all three ink colors, and added a second layer of the center flowers popped up with foam tape for dimension. I topped my tag with a spray of pale pink organdy ribbon and a pink heart open center button. I also applied yellow Stickles to the button center, the yellow floral spray, and the flower center.
See how pretty the Color Throwdown Inspiration photos are? I hope you'll pop over this week and join the fun!
