CTD109 Thank You

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

I survived my first day of work yesterday...yeah!!! It was super fun!!! I really have to count my blessings...I'm working with some wonderful people!!!

It's been a fast moving week.....it's already time for another Color Throwdown Challenge ~ CTD109. This weeks colors are *WOW* and I hope you have time to play along with us!!! Check them out....



I have done some different from my ususal White CS style and I kinda like it :)......



I dug out my beautiful SU Elements of Style Set and colored it with the Melon Mambo and Pear Pizzazz Ink. I actually used my SU Blender Pen for a chance to create this look. I almost forgot how fun it is to color with these pens :) !!! I don't have the Daffodil Delight CS yet and replaced it with So Saffron, but added some Daffodil Delight color inside the rose image with the SU Marker. The Tempting Turquoise CS was embossed with the SU Texture Folder and I also added a matching SU Button to the Ribbon. I finished the card off with some ink distressing, some Dazzling Diamond Glitter and  Silver Pearls :). Can't find any Silver Pearls in your area...check out my friend Judy's new store....right HERE!!!

Don't forget to stop by the CTD blog for all the fabulous samples or stop by ~ Barbara, Broni, DanielleKristin, Laura, LeAnne and Tammy blog to see their posts close up!!!


Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by today!!! Hugs ~S~

Gorgeous card, Silke! I used to use my blender pen all the time and not sure why I got away from it...maybe my Copics took over. :-) So glad you had a great first day of work...it really makes a job so much better when you have great co-workers (and I am blessed to work with good people)!
