Color Throwdown #206


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!  The super sweet Kerri  is our hostess and she has picked some beautiful colors for us this week!!!! Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors...use what you have that comes close...we want everyone to have a chance to play


My card features the bird stamp from Purple Onion Stamps and the wonderful verse from Verve Stamps....I also used the Mojo Monday Sketch #255

My Cameo Coral matting really looks dark in the photo....it's a lot lighter IRL.... MFT's Dienamics dies were used for the Pretty in Pink rolled roses, the sentiment panel, and the scalloped edge. The patterned paper strip is from Papertrey Ink and the pearls for the flower centers and the punched leaves finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Created with Love Challenge - 3 of anything
2. The Cupboard Trilogy - embossing
3. The Crafty Pad Designs - punches/dies
4. Craft Your Passion Challenge - use 3 of something


Be sure to add CTD206 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
