Color Throwdown Challenge #142

I am SO excited to share my card today! I'm certain this is the FASTEST card I've ever made! LOL Took no longer than a half hour (I think). So, I'm either getting better at throwing these together or I got lucky tonight ;] Either way, it's a card I would feel comfortable giving away (though I hope I never need to). This awesome palette was selected by the ever so talented, Broni ♥ Check it out.
I used my new go-to set, MTME Sentimental Occasions and Occasional Labels. The bloom is from the latter. I simply stamped it in black and stamped a second time for the gray blooms. I then stamped my lime blooms using Memento New Sprout ink.  I ran my oval layer from the MTME Occasional Label cut file along my Memento London Fog ink pad and popped it up on my label.  My green cs is Bazzil Petty Cash.  I printed some of my MTME patterned paper for my base layers, Love Notes and School Plaid - Collection 1
The black ribbon is actually trim from the Hobby Lobby, and the gray ribbon came free with an order from Ellen Hutson.  I tied off the ribbon and button with some lime twine I picked up at Michaels.  ...and last but not least, my scalloped layer was a remnant I cut from my MTME Border Builders Elegance cut file the other day.  Not much more to it than that!  Super quick and easy! 

Be sure to swing by the rest of our DT's blogs to absorb some more inspiration!!  You can check out the rules and link your card over at the CTD blog :]

I love the beautiful focal panel you made for this. Easy to do with your awesome stamps, but the way you did the flowers is just perfect!

Broni said...

This is wonderful! I never would've thought to make a sympathy card using the lime, but wow! This is just perfect! All the patterns and layers work fabulously together!!

It's amazing, Kristin! You rocked the Danielle-ish card! I just freakin' LOVE those stamps of yours along with the ovals and frames!
