Psalm 46:1 {Color Throwdown #345}

It's my honor to be the June Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge. This week's challenge colors are black, white, green and red.

Even though this card is clean and simple, I managed to use a lot of different products on it. I stamped the verse from the Verve Scripture Medley 2 set onto a Reverse Confetti Quick Panel card using Simon Says Black ink. I cut the frame using The Cat's Pajamas Stitched Fly die from black cardstock and then cut out the word fly just leaving the frame portion. After trimming the stamped card I layered the frame onto it. The bird from The Cat's Pajamas Take Flight set was stamped with Strawberry Slush ink and then cut out with the matching die from the Bird Friends set.  I cut the branch from patterned paper using the Taylored Expressions Leafy Branch die and placed the bird on it using dimensional dots. After cutting a background panel using a Lil Inker Designs Stitched Rectangle and attached the image panel to it, I cut a banner  using one of the The Cat's Pajamas Bitty Banners and then slipped it underneath the panel so that only the top showed as a tab. Small red rhinestones were added for an additional dash of red.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp and dies, Verve stamp, Reverse Confetti Quick Card Panel, PTI and Bazzill cs, Oriental Trading Co. rhinestones, Taylored Expressions and Lil Inker Designs dies, Simon Says and Stampin' Up inks
