Color Throwdown Challenge #289


Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!!! Monika is our hostess this week and I just love the soft, pretty colors she picked...so springy!!


My card features the bird cage, branch, and birds from Crafty Secret's retired Birds at Home set and the sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Crushin set. The branch, sentiment, and birdcage were stamped with Perfect Plum and the birdcage was stamped again on a scrap piece of white card stock, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. The leaves were colored with a Copic and the bird were stamped with Blushing bride. The paper is from Basic Grey and the ribbon finishes 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 CTD289 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.
