Featured Stamper #65 and winner!

This weeks featured stamper is Rosemary D with this lovely butterfly card! I love the simple layout and the patterned paper the butterfly was stamped on! Thanks Rosemary for this beautiful entry!



And for the Bella Bucks winner we have #24 Lori Ryder! Congratulations Lori! Please contact Cathy at stamper_c@yahoo.com for your prize!

I would also like to give props to Stampin Pam and Linda L for their beautiful creations!

Thanks to everyone who joined us this week! I have a few reminders about the rules of play and that yucky stuff....

-You MUST create your link directly to your post and not just to your blog. If the link is incorrect it will be deleted.

-In order to have a chance to be chosen as a Featured Stamper you must link this blog, The Color Throwdown, in your post. We have had several cases where we were unable to choose someone as a winner because there was no active link on their post.

Thanks for another successful week! Look for a new challenge tomorrow with LeAnne!
