Color throwdown Challenge #231



Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! My sweet friend, Broni, is the hostess this week and she has picked some beautiful warm weather colors for us to play with this week!!! I can just taste those green apples...yummm!!!


I have oodles and gobs of Prima flowers and ribbons just sitting in a basket collecting dust so I have decided to start using them at least once a week. I just love the fabric flower on this card and the ribbons match this weeks colors.....I love it when a plan comes together!!!! The Mojo Monday Sketch #282 was used along with Making Memories dp for the background and a Die-namics die was used for the leaves. I just had to add a little twine to finish it off. 

Be sure to add CTD231 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
