500 Challenges!  WOW!

Color Throwdown is celebrating their 500 (!!) challenge this week.  500. weekly. challenges.  A huge accomplishment therefore, many, many congrats are in order.  

The color combo for this week got it’s inspiration from a fireworks display:  navy blue, blush, gold, and white.  I used Night of Navy, Blushing Bride, and gold accents in the form of ribbon, thread, and Wink of Stella.  I’m not really a gold person and making this card convinced me that I need to at least have more gold embellishments.  

Here’s my sweet card:

 

Here’s the ctd500 challenge link:

 

Varied Vases is such a sweet stamp set,  and the coordinating punch makes it very easy to use individual pieces.   Million dollar sales demo, Mary Fish ( in whose third level I happily belong), designed the set, including her signature tulip.  I used Night of Navy and white Tutti Frutti  DSP, also retired, to punch out the vases.  Night of Navy,  Blushing Bride, and Whisper White paper, inks or Stamping Write markers were the only colors used, which I think adds to the sweetness.  

My Need for Gold is Evident

I really thought I at least had gold faceted gems.  Wrong.  Therefore, I have had to resort to just touches of gold.  The ribbon used across the separation between the Night of Navy and Blushing Bride cardstock for the base of the card.  The gold thread, also retired, forms a sweet little square knot on the two smaller vases.  Wink of Stella, also retired, highlights the stems and flower centers.   

Clear Wink of Stella usually is difficult to see in pictures, but the gold one photographs much easier.  Here’s a close-up of the Wink of Stella and gold thread touches:
