Hawai'ian Color Throwdown #45

Color Throwdown #45 uses the colors Green Galore, Pink Passion and Chocolate Chip.  I stamped my flowers (designed by RSP Honolulu) onto Very Vanilla to make my own designer paper and added a matching "reverse" piece of ribbon. The sentiment (designed by Stampette) was inked in Green Galore, then punched out of Very Vanilla with the Scallop Oval Punch (114889) and matted with a Wide Oval Punch (112082) of Pink Passion. I used the sketch 227 from Splitcoast Stampers to create my design. If you have never done a card challenge, Splitcoast is a wealth of ideas. Stampers share their creations and we all get ideas from one another. I really stretch my creativity by using sketches and color challenge combinations. It has made me a better stamper!

Mahalo to my friend, Alohi!  The rubber stamps on this card were gifts from her.
