Color Throwdown #224

Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! The wonderful and super talented Lori is this weeks hostess and boy...did she ever pick some soft and pretty colors!!! In fact, they remind me of spring and children playing in the grass and flowers!!

My card features the silhouette stamp from Flourishes Kids at Play was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black on designer papers from Echo Park's Victorian Garden. Sewing was done between the paper sections and the rick rack diecut, Baker's Twine from The Twinery, and button finish it off. 

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Everybody Art Challenge - pastel colors
2. Forever Friends and Co. - birthdays
3. Loves Rubberstamps Challenge - dies and punches (I used a rick rack die and small corner rounder for the right side corners)

Be sure to add CTD224 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
