Color Throwdown Challenge #244


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! Lynn is our hostess this week and she has picked some beautiful summery colors for us to play with!!! 


I decided to create a little garden scene with Taylored Expressions Garden Party Blooms set. The sun was stamped with Summer Sun (because I don't have Daffodil Delight ink) and the mushrooms were stamped with Tempting Turquoise and Pink Passion (yes, I still have that one...LOL!!) The flower stem was stamped with Going Gray as was the sentiment. The flower was made with Pink Passion card stock and Memory Box dies.  The rick rack was stamped on Tempting Turquoise paper with the same color ink, cutout, and adheres with glue. The pearl is the only embellie...gasp!!!! 

Be sure to add CTD244 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

This is so cute!!! I'm using TE on my card for the Throwdown, as well. I have melon mambo, but that seems too dark & I need a more "bubblegum" color... Hmmmmm, I was hoping that you had used a diff color ink. :))
