Another Color Challenge

One of my Inspired by Stamping design team duties is to play in two challenges per month. I get to pick the challenges and the stamps that I want to use. 

This week I chose to play along in the Color Throwdown #243. I love the photo they chose to illustrate their challenge!

I think the colors in the swatch are all Stampin' Up colors. I just picked colors that seemed close and went from there.

There is no rule as to how much of each color you need to use, thankfully. I only used a tiny bit of the blue. But it's there! I stamped a sentiment from the Inspired by Stamping Big Wishes II set and then cut it out with the Fancy Labels 1 die template.

I sponges a bit of yellow ink onto the sentiment block. And I made a lovely bow for the top!

Nice and lumpy, as always! {grin}

I used another stamp from the Big Wishes II set for the inside. I also used one of the Washi Tape stamps. I am not sure it "goes" but I wanted to use it any way!
