Color Throwdown #125

The last two weeks have been challenging in a number of ways, mainly as a result of the flooding in Qld, and particularly in Brisbane.  While our home is high and dry, so many people, some of our friends included, were not so lucky.  The good news is that all of our family and friends are safe. I will write another post to talk about the experience and to share some photos.

I loved the colours this week at Color Throwdown #125
and so I used them to make a very simple card for someone special.  No sentiment, just a simple picture with a ribbon.  I didn't have blushing bride or pear pizzazz, so I substituted  blush blossom and certainly celery instead.  I threw in a bit of creamy caramel to do the beak, legs, and wing edging.  The light wasn't good when I took the photo, so the kraft looks a bit grey.

The outcome was:

I hope you like it.

All products used were Stampin' Up.

He is a stunner Michelle, particularly the creamy caramel (bit of a surprise there). Glad you are all OK, thought you would be but it was such a disruption!
