Color Throwdown Challenge #181

Hello everyone...It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! The lovely Lynn is our hostess this week and she has picked some beautiful rose inspired colors for us to create with!!

I used an awesome wooden gate from Kaiser Craft on top of the beautiful Webster's Pages dp called Trendsetter. The flower is from Prima and the leaves were made using a Spellbinders die. The Sentiment is from Verve's Anniversary Birds set and the copper cording, sewing, and distressing finishes it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Love to Create Challenge Blog - stitching
2. My Grafico Challenge - flowers
3. Scrappy Frog Challenge - diecuts (leaves)
4. Stampalot Challenge - In the Garden
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 CTD181 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
