Color Combos Galore + Pencil Lines = Fabulous Fun!

Pencil Lines is celebrating their 200th anniversary, and they've invited Color Combos Galore to the party! Two hundred sketches--what an amazing accomplishment! Congratulations, Pencil Lines! We have partnered up with Pencil Lines for the rest of the month to celebrate their impressive milestone, with Color Combos Galore contributing the palette and Pencil Lines providing the sketch--a match made in scrappy heaven! Here's what's we got to work with this week:

And here is the page I made. I really dug through my stash to get just the right colors and found some oldies but goodies--Wild Asparagus, Ki Memories, and K&Co--and mixed them with newer papers--Webster's Pages. The frame in the background is actually a 6 x 6 paper from Webster's Pages. I trimmed out the center, cut it in half, and expanded it by placing the cut part behind the strip in the the middle.

Here I used a variety of flowers, from Petaloo, Prima, and Recollections. 
The occasion of my special birthday dinner was the perfect opportunity to use this chandelier cut from a Webster's Pages paper. I used Stickles on the candlesticks and added some pretty blue pearls to fancy it up. I used my favorite border punch--Iron Gate by Martha Stewart. 
I've become addicted to embossing powder, and the powder blue Zing was the perfect color for the leaves in my flower clusters. That stamp is by Autumn Leaves. It has a bunch of branches with leaves, and I cut it apart. 
I added a Hambly rub-on to a transparency to hold my title. Those letters are velvet and are made by Prima. The brads, which I have been hoarding are by Creating Keepsakes. I don't think they sell them anymore. I got them at Jo-Anns a few years ago. I think they're so pretty--especially the metal part holding the gem. 
Head over to Pencil Lines to see what the Pencil Lines and Color Combos Galore teams did with this sketch and color combo. I'm always fascinated by how each person interprets the same sources of inspiration in so many different ways. And I hope you'll join us for the fun and make a page, too! Be sure to share your creation at Pencil Lines and on this thread at Color Combos Galore.

As always, your layouts are fabulous! And how lucky you were to have enjoyed a tasting menu at Bryan Voltaggio's restaurant--remember him, and his brother Michael, from Top Chef last year, I think it was.
