Color Throwdown Challenge #245

Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! It's Tammy's turn to host the challenge this week...she took the month of May off and we are sooo happy to welcome her back!!! She has picked some gorgeous colors, too...they are so soft and summery!!  We have to say good by to our fabulous May Guestie,  Audrey Hiltke  and welcome to  our June Guestie, the very talented and awesome Wanda Guess!!!!

I used this weeks Mojo Monday Sketch #296 for my layout and the sentiment is from Verves Blessings set. The flower was made with PTI flower dies...the flower layers were embossed with the Dotted Swiss embossing folder and a white craft ink pad was used to edge the petals. Papers from Echo Parks Victoria Gardens and Bo Bunny's Little Miss were used and the ribbons in the background, the leaf die cut, rhinestones, button, and twine finish it off.

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors....use what you have as long as they are close and be sure to add CTD245 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Lots of lovely layers ... & your efforts on the little details do not go unnoticed !! The embossing on the petals & white edges add so much to this design to make it come alive! So so pretty ... I'm taking notes!
