Color Throwdown Challenge #234

Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! The very talented Tammy is our hostess this week and she has some very pretty and kinda dramatic colors for us to create with!!!! I have used a new set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Nature Silhouettes 2. 

The leaf stamp was first stamped on the white card stock in a circle for the wreath shape. Since I didn't have Garden Green, I used Wild Wasabi.  Then several leafs were stamped on a scrap piece of white card stock, cut out, and adhered over the stamped wreath with pop dots and glue dots. The birds were cutout of Real Red card stock with the coordinating die from the Birds and Feather die set and black pearls were used for the eyes. The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy's Flowers in Bloom set and the twine, lace, and button finish it off. 
Be sure to add CTD234 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
