Color Throwdown Challenge #253


Hello everyone...hope all is well with you and your's!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Wanda is our hostess this week and don't you just love the bright, happy colors she picked for us to play with!!!


My card features stamps from the Stampin Up! set called Fabulous Florets and the sentiment is from Waltzingmouse's Light of the World set. The yellow and orange flowers were colored with Copics and the turquoise flower was stamped with Tempting Turquoise. They were all cutout out and popped up with foam dots. The ribbon and Cherry Lynn vine diecut finish it off.

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 CTD253 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
