Color Throwdown #241

Hello's my turn to host the challenge this week and I have some beautiful colors for you to create with!! Don't you just love the wreath....I wish it was hanging on my door!!!!!

My card features stamps from Taylored Expressions Birds of a Feather set. The branch was stamped with Crumb Cake and Mellow Moss for the leaves. The flowers were punched with an old Stampin Up! punch. The bird cages were embossed with white ep.....the birds were stamped on white card stock using Regal Rose and Elegant Eggplant, cutout, and popped up on foam dots. The sentiment is from the same set and the pearls and twine finish it off. .

If you don't have the exact colors,  just use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors.
Once you have finished your project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post. Don't forget to add CTD241 to your key words when you upload to an online gallery. You can find all the challenge rules in the right side bar of the Color Throwdown Blog.
