Kathy's Color Throw Down

This is my second post of the day, please click here or scroll down to see my card for Sparkle Creations April Release Sneak Peek. Thanks! =)

I am sharing a card that I made for the Kathy's Color Throw Down Challenge over at the Lily Pad Cards. Here are the colors for the challenge:

Here is my card:

I used the lovely Dandelion Clock from Lili of the Valley for my card. She is stamped and colored on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock. The image is then cut and embossed using a Standard Circles Large die. The sentiment piece is cut using the same die set. I also added a little Star Dust Stickles to her wings.

I matted both pieces with patterned paper cut using the Fleur De Lis die set before I stitched the layers together. I also cut a piece of flourish from the Elegant Flourishes die and tucked it under the image for a little interest. The patterned paper is from the Frond collection by Memory Box and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Don't forget to go to Lily Pad Cards to see what the other Dream Team members came up with for this challenge and for the details for the challenge.

Hope you can join us! =)
