Color Throwdown Challenge #185



Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! My sweet friend Broni  is our hostess this week and she has picked some beautiful colors that just scream Spring....I just had to create some flowers!!!! 



I used a Papertrey Ink vine diecut with Kiwi Kiss...I didn't have any Lucky Limeade...and added some little punched flowers with a black pearl center. The Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics set and the paper is from Simple Stories' Baby Steps. The little punched butterfly, sewing, and ribbon finish it off.

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors to play along...use what you have that is similar to the challenge colors. Be sure to add CTD185 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
