Color Throwdown #180

Good morning everyone!! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another  Color Throwdown Challenge!! The uber talented Lori is our hostess this week and she has picked some soft and pretty spring colors for us to create with!!
My card features papers from K&Co. called Itsy Bitsy Boy and the Rubbernecker Happy Birthday Square sentiment #565-19 and Child With Bouquet #539-09 stamps. The child was stamped with Memento London Fog, colored with copics, cutout, and popped up on foam dots. The felt flower, punched leaves, and ribbon finish it off.
Recipe: Stamps: Rubbernecker  Happy birthday Square and Child With Bouquet
Paper: White, Basic Gray, K&Co. dp
Ink: Memento Londen fog, Basic Gray
Accessories: Rose die, Pearl, Round and Square Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Leaf Punch, Ribbon,  Copics

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. The Cheerful Stamp Pad - Happy Birthday
2. Incy Wincy Designs - Birthday
3. The Crazy Challenge - use a die or punch (rose, square and round Nestabilities....MS leaf punch)
4. Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog - birthdays
5. Scrappy Frogs Challenge blog - die cuts (rose, Square and round Nestabilities

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors to play along...use what ever you have that is similar to the challenge colors. Be sure to add CTD180 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
