Color Throwdown Challenge #252


Hello Everyone!! ...it's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Tammy is our hostess this week and she has picked a gorgeous color combo!! I love the new in colors, especially Coastal Cabana!! 


Paper Smooches Friendly Flowers  set was used for my card today....the flowers  and stems were all colored with Copics and the flowers were cutout and popped up with foam dots.  Different Stampin Up! punches were used for the vases...they were all embossed with different folders and the center one was popped up on foam dots. The sentiment is from the same set and the twine is the finishing touch. 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD252 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
