Lily Pad Cards Kathy's Color Throw Down #2

Happy Friday, all! =) Thanks for joining me for a card for this week's challenge over at Lily Pad Cards. It's Kathy's Color Throw Down #2 and here are the colors:


Here is my card:


This week's sponsor is The Greeting Farm and I chose Dressy Jeremy for my card. This clean cut handsome guy is totally my type! =)


I was mojoless when I made this card, so the design is simple. Jeremy is printed and colored on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock. I used the Scallops On The Edge die (it's on sale!) for the bottom border of my card. I used removable adhesive to attach the background patterned paper on the card front before I send the piece (all three layers) into my die-cut machine.


I then peeled the patterned paper and added stitching before gluing it back again. In real life this card stands tilted due to the funky scallops. =) The patterned paper is from the Minuet collection by Memory Box and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

That's all I have. Please hop over to Lily Pad Cards to check out what the other Dream Team members came up with and to find out how you can join the fun! =)



Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
