Color Throwdown Challenge #192

Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! Tammy is our hostess with the mostess this week and she has picked some  bright, happy colors for this weeks challenge!!!  I even had a piece of Sage Shadow to use for the matting....Whoohoo!!!

My card features a Rubbernecker stamp called Dandelion Garden Border #540-02. Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Regal Rose, and Sage Shadow markers were used to color the stamp and then I misted it just a tad before stamping it on the white cardstock. The sentiment is from Rubbernecker's Floral Silhouette set #467  and colored rhinestones and Baker's Twine finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Opus Gluei - beyond the garden gate
2. Lawnscaping Challenge - CAS
3. Ooh La La Creations - ribbon or twine
4. Tammy's Scrapin Corner - show us your flowers
5. Amusing Challenge - flowers

Be sure to add CTD192 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Ooh I love your Colour Throwdown posts, Joan, I always have a good look at the colours before I scroll down to see how you used them. This colour combo is FAB....very interesting combination, love how you used them. The sage green and pinks are pretty classic, but the addition of the orange makes them something else entirely.

It's lovely over here at the moment...there's been so much rain, but also lots of sun for us too. Gorgeous storm yesterday, the kind you want to go out walking in. right now, I'm looking forward to my bar of chocolate and a watch of the TV! Have a good evening. CoB
