Color Throwdown #161

Happy Wednesday, my friends!  I'm hosting the Color Throwdown (CTD161) this week and I chose what I think is a fun and easy palette for you to work with!  Check it out:
It's based on my new digi paper pack at My Time Mady Easy called Trendy Forest.  HUGE thanks to the CTD gals who were able to use it on their cards this week!  They made it look fantastic!!  I used three of the sheets on my card, and also recolored some Wistful Musical Magic paper in chocolate for my circle panel.  I cut it on my Cricut using my Cornice Trimmed Circle cut file resized to 3".  I cut my flag panel using the flag piece from the What's My Fortune? Cookie cut file.  My sentiment and the bird cage are from the Singing Silhouette stamp set.  I stamped and embossed the cage on the vellum panel I cut using the Caged cut file.  My cute little bird was cut from the A Little Birdie cut file and resized to fit on my birdcage :]  Oh my...evertime I think I'm done sharing the supplies I used, I realize there's yet another cut file!  Last but certainly not least, the pretty branch that I cut from my plaid lime paper used the Branching Out cut file.  My white, ruffled trim, melon ribbon, and chocolate brad are from Hobby Lobby.
My layout was inspired by Chupa's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #30.
Okay, I think that covers everything!  Don't stop here though, we have a TON of inspiration from our very talented DT.  Be sure to check out their goodies :]

I love this color combo and your paper pack is FANTASTIC, Kristin! Seriously - it's going to get a lot of use from me throughout the Fall. In one of my responses to the conversations that are still floating around somewhere, I asked if you would PLEASE create some cute cloud papers. I need an unlimited supply and I'm tired of buying 6x6 pads just for a couple of squares of clouds.

Now, for your card: I love the velum/embossed bird cage. Genius!

This is gorgeous, girl! Your papers are fabulous and I love that vellum bird cage, too! (I'm with Carole--do the clouds!)

Totally fabulous, Kristin! Every time I see an element stamped on vellum, I urge myself to try it myself, but I never do... I'm hopeless :)
Needless to say, I love how you incorporated it into your design, and I also love your colours and papers!

WOW Kristin! I saw your card on the Color Throwdown blog and just had to comment. It's one of the prettiest cards I've EVER seen! The colors, the vellum birdcage, and the layering all inspire me. I just signed up to follow your blog. Please check mine out when you have a second. TFS!!
