Color Throwdown Challenge #204


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!  The fabulous and oh so sweet Broni 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 flower stamps from The Cat's Meow Flower Garden set...they were stamped with Basic Gray, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. A Martha Stewart butterfly punch was used for the red butterfly and orange bling was added. The sentiment from Verve's Blessings set was stamped with Basic Gray onto vanilla cardstock and cutout with a MFT's Die-namics die. The paper is from Basic Grey's Ambrosia and the seam binding. sewing and distressing finishes it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Scrap-Creations - use things that start with D - dies, distressing
2. The Ribbon Carousel Blog Challenge - stitching - I used real stitching around the background edges
3. Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog - bingo - flowers, ribbon, and distressing
4. Tuesday Alchemy - bingo - ribbons, flowers, bling (on the butterfly)


Be sure to add CTD204 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
