Color Throwdown Challenge #229


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! It's the wonderful Wanda's turn to host the challenge this week and aren't the colors pretty!!! The strawberries in the inspiration photo look mighty yummy, too!!! Don't be shocked but I didn't make a Valentine....even though these colors would look fabulous on a Valentine!!


My card features  The sentiment from Crafty Secret's Bird Lover's set. It was stamped on a Die-namics die and the flower and leaves are Spellbinder's diecuts. The rick rack diecut is from Taylored Expressions, the Martha Stewart  punch was used for the butterfly, and the pearl flourish, button, and twine finish it off.

Be sure to add CTD229 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
