Morning Glory - Color Throwdown Challenge!!

Hi Stamping Friends!!  I have some wonderful news - this is my first post as the May Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge team.  I'm looking forward to spending time with my friend and former SCS Dirty Girl Sister Wanda Cullen and all the other girls who design for this group during the month of May.

The colors chosen for this week are so pretty, and like a lot of things, I'd not have thought to pair them together.  Who knew that all these colors could coordinate so well??  Not me!!

To make this card I stamped the ODBD Morning Glory stamp, die-cut and colored that layer using Copic Markers.  I also added some stickles for sparkle, and some matte glaze in certain areas to add depth, along with some liquid pearls for more textures and interest.

Then I die-cut two more panels in black and off-set them a bit.  Next I chose the colors for the background layers, embossed and then matted the layers over black card stock.  Everything is assembled with foam tape for extra dimension!!

Such a pretty card. I like the "black" layers to produce the pretty shadow effect. Very pretty color combination and textures. hugs, de
