Color Throwdown Challenge #238



Hello everyone!!  It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! 
 The wonderfully talented Wanda is our hostess this week and what fabulous colors....I love blue and yellow together!!!

My card features the Hollyhock stamp from Flourishes...it was colored with Copics and tiny yellow pearls were added to the flower centers. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink, the blue gingham paper is from Hobby Lobby, and the seam binding is the finishing touch.

Be sure to add CTD238 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
