Color Throwdown #200 and Blog Candy!




Hello!  We have an exciting week this week at Color Throwdown, because we are celebrating our 200th Challenge!!!  What does this mean for you?  How about LOTS of prizes!!!  

Each DT member has some blog candy up for grabs, and to win you need to leave a comment on each DT blog AND play along with our color challenge this week:)  How could you not want to play along with this ADORABLE inspiration picture and fab color combo???  Thank you so much, Lynn, for picking such a fun image!



For my card I used this adorable owl from Your Next Stamp called Spring Owl.  I simply cut the owl off of her watering can, and replaced her flowers with balloons.  This is what the original stamp looks like:


I also used the YNS Criss Cross Border Die to cut out the ric rac panel and the YNS Balloon Trio Die Set to cut out the balloons.  The banner was made with the PTI Banner Builder stamp set and coordinating dies and the dp is My Mind's Eye Ooh La La.

Are you ready to see the Blog Candy I have up for grabs???  How about a darling stamp from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps called Sledding Chloe, the Your Next Stamp Cylinder Globe Stamp PLUS Coordinating Cylinder Globe Die, a darling YNS Fairy, and some fun ribbon!



To win, just leave me a comment, AND play along with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge
