Color Throwdown #196

Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!
The fabulous Danielle  is our hostess this week and she has picked some soft, pretty  pastel colors for us to play with!! I just love to combine blue and yellow!!

I went very CAS this week...images from the A-muse Studio set called  Avian Notes were used along with a Die-manics sentiment die. The trees were stamped with Crumb Cake onto the Bashful Blue card stock and the birds were stamped with So Saffron, cutout, and popped up with foam dots. The sentiment layers are So Saffron and Crumb Cake and the vanilla twine finishes it off. I can't believe I didn't add any patterned paper, lace, buttons, layers....I must have a fever!!!!!

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Paper and Such - our feathered friends
2. Let's Ink it Up - use your favorite embellishment - mine is twine
3. Quirky Crafts Challenge - feature something you will see in the sky - birds
4. Pile it On - let's get outdoors
5. Southern Girls Challenge - things with wings
6. Emergency Crafters - butterflies, birds, or anything with wings

Be sure to add CTD196 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Hiya Joan, I love CAS cards, especially the ones which, like yours, bring an immediate reaction of "oh, that's like a breath of fresh air" when I look at them! this one feels really calming to look at, such nice colours.

Love how you did the birds on foam dots and the way the sentiment disappears off the page.....fab design feature! CoB
