Tuesday Throwdown #215: Opposites Attract

Last day of September, folks! Let's end the month with a celebration of colour with Tuesday Throwdown. The theme of this week's challenge is "Opposites Attract". We want you to use colours that lie opposite to each other on the colour wheel.

Our sponsor this week is Craft Classes Online and the winner will win a spot at one of their awesome classes. I decided to try something CAS with red and green without it being about Christmas ... and that was the real challenge for me!

Plain white background (eeek!). The greeting is from CBS Say It In Style.
TO finish I added tint bling and ribbon in a simple knot.

For the flowers and leaves I used CBS Simply Quilled and stitched
the stem instead of stamping. I also die cut the flowers and popped
a couple up on foam tape.

A simpler stalk on the inside.

Challenges for this card:

Crafty Sentiments: Bingo Rubber stamp - Die cut - Ribbon
Now it's your turn to create a project based on this week's theme: "Opposites Attract". For ideas and inspiration, take a peek at what the rest of the DT members have made. Remember to link up your project at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog by 3pm Pacific / 11pm UK by Monday, October 6th. And the most important requirement: Have Fun!

Thanks for stopping by today and I wish y'all a beautiful Tuesday.

Beijinhos!

  5. You did a great job showcasing red and green in a non Christmas way. It really looks like quilling and this is so beautiful and so nicely stated to showcase the last rays of summer even though we are in Autumn...officially. We have been having July weather the last week
