Color Throwdown Challenge #284


Hello everyone!!! I just want you all to know that I survived spring break....woot!!! I had up to 4 grands here every day last week and then 2 on Saturday and down to one on Sunday....I could hardly get out of bed on Monday morning...LOL!!!! We had a great week with lots of fun and laughs. They let me know that they will be back to spend all summer with us....yikes!!! We may have to discuss that one!!!! Anyway....

Barbara is our hostess for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge and I sooo love the colors she picked this week!!! I never would have put those colors together but after working with them, I will be using them again!!!


My card features stamps from two Reverse Confetti sets: Petals 'n Posies for the flowers and leaves and Lots to Say for the sentiment. The flowers and leaves were all stamped with the challenge colors and cutout with the coordinating dies. Enamel dots were added to the flower centers and the Baker's Twine finished 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 CTD284 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You can find out all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
