Color Throw Down and a Coffee Break Challenge

Hi there Stampers! Thanks for stopping by!

I haven't played along with a challenge in so long it was such fun to do these two! I combined two challenges for today's card. I used the sketch from the ladies at the Diva Coffee Break Designs blog as well as the colors for the Color Throw Down for this week!

I started out with a Whisper White card base and ran it through with the Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. I sponged the edges first in Certainly Celery and the in Perfect Plum. I added a thin strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock and stamped my image from the Very Thankful stamp set (#115338) in Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip using my SU Markers. I matted it first on Perfect Plum and then on Certainly Celery cardstock. I popped it up on Dimensionals and added the knot of Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon with a Mini Glue Dot.

I love this peacock image! What's great about this stamp set is that it has a variety of styles (pretty, cutesy and more modern) and for every one of this stamp set sold Stampin' Up! donates $2 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. A great stamp set and a great cause!

Don't forget to check out last Friday's post so you can be put into the drawing for some Blog Candy!! :)



  1. What a lovely card, I like the colors of this challenge but I love your interpretation of them. How beautiful is that peacock!?! I want to look up this stamp set. Really pretty and inspiring, Elizabeth!

  2. I have never seen that cuttlebug embossed image inked like that before. The effect is stunning, especially with that peacock you used!

  3. Wow what an elegant card, wonderful job

  4. Your card is so beautiful. Love that peacock.
