Hot Colours - TT106


Hi, I hope you're having a great week so far. Todays challenge at "Tuesday Throwdown" is Hot Colours. Our sponsor is *The Crop Stop.* and they have lots of stamps and crafty goodies available in their online store, Be sure to stop by and check them out!  They have also put together a very generous prize package for One lucky winner, so that's a great reason to join us in our 'Hot Colours' challenge this week. 
Unfortunately, there isn't much of a heatwave here in the UK, so some hot, tropical colours were definitely in order for my card.


I chose SNSS's 'Everyday Miracles' Digital Stamp Set for my card today. I sponged some Memento Rose Bud ink around the sentiment and coloured one of the butterflies from the set with pink Copic Markers.  I thought the vibrant pinks/yellow/greens in Pink Paislee's Spring Jubilee looked wonderful for this challenge, so I cut 4 strips and created the background.  


I used this week's sketch SSS166  over at the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge Blog as inspiration for my card layout. I used a butterfly instead of the little text box and took a little liberty by moving the butterfly's position upwards.

We would love you to come along and join us for this week's challenge.  Also note that Tuesday Throwdown is having a DT call which will end on July 29, and we'd love to see you apply.  All the details on that can be found on the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge blog, and you can see all the inspiration from the rest of the team for this week's challenge.
