Hummingbird Hugs - Color Throwdown #705

~

Hey, guys!  It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge and this week our colors are Purple, Red, and Green.

Purple is a very general color label, and I chose to use a darker hue than the one in the photo for my card this week.

This birthday card is for a dear friend who LOVES purple!  And I think she'll love the hummingbird too! 

I used the new Layered Hummingbird die from Simon Says Stamp , along with a Sizzix Tropical Leaves 3D embossing folder, a sentiment die from Spellbinders Simply Perfect Mix & Match set,  and an Essential Arches die and A2 Piercing Plate from Ellen Hutson LLC.  I love the look of all these elements combined.  

Since I already had several additional hummingbird die cut pieces, I used them to create a second card with a more muted palette.

This one will be for a friend who is recovering from some medical issues. 

The background on this one was ink blended with Distress ink in Crushed Olive, then blended over with some white pigment ink to soften the color.

We'd love for you to join us for the challenge this week!  Click the links below for some awesome inspiration from the design team members to get your creative juices flowing.
