Color Throwdown Challenge #190



Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! Lori is our hostess this week and she has picked some bright, happy colors for this weeks challenge!!!  

My card features the fern stamp from Rubbernecker's Fall Trilogy set #480. It was stamped with Kiwi Kiss and the rolled roses were added with glue dots. The butterflies were punched out of Basic Gray card stock with a Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker's Wildflower set #465 and the My Favorite Things die cut border finishes it off.

Be sure to add CTD190 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
