Thank You For Loving Me Even When I’m Prickly! {CTD386}

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Lisa has challenged us to use lime green, teal and white!  LOVE this color combination!!


Aside from loving this color combo, I LOVE the Sweet Succulents set and Sweet Succulents Die-namics!  LOVE!  For my card, I started with the background.  I cut a panel of Smooth White Card Stock using Blueprints 1 Die-namics and I added a mat using Blueprints 2 Die-namics.  I used the On The Diagonal Stencil and lightly sponged Berrylicious Premium Dye Ink, taking care to not sponge the entire panel.

I cut a panel of Black Licorice Prestige Card Stock using Blueprints 1 Die-namics and trimmed it down.  I used one of the stamps in Sweet Succulents and repeatedly stamped it using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  I then accented it with a strip of Sour Apple Card Stock.

I cut a panel of Berrylicious Card Stock using the Zig Zag Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics, and then added the cacti and pot, cut from X-Press It Blending Card using Sweet Succulents Die-namics and then stamped them using Sweet Succulents with Black Licorice Hybrid Ink and colored them with Copic Markers.  I popped them up with Jody Boosters and then added a strip of Sweet Tooth Card Stock with the sentiment, “Thank You For Loving Me Even When I’m Prickly” using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink.  I finished off the card with an enamel dot/rhinestone trio.
