Color Throwdown #254

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Barbara is our hostess and she has picked some beautiful summery colors for us to play with!! We have to say good by to our July Guest Designer, Stacey Schafer...her cards were all sooo fabulous!!! Our August Guestie is Kendra Wietstock...I can't wait for you to see her awesome work!!!

We also have two new members of the Color Throwdown....We are sooo excited to announce the addition of Vickie Zimmer and Melody Rupple !!!! Vickie was a Guestie last year and has played along with our weekly challenges often!! Melody will be using the challenge colors for some scrapbook pages....welcome!!!!

My card features stamps from two Taylored Expressions sets: Happily Ever After and Garden Party Blooms. The flowers and leaves were stamped with the challenge colors...masking was done and pearls were added to the flower centers. The yellow layered flower was stamped three times on white card stock, each layer was cutout and adhered with foam tape. Two leaves were stamped and cutout also...they were adhered behind the flower with glue dots. The twine and sentiment from the Happily Ever After set are the finishing touches. 
This was also made for this weeks Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoast...the Featured stamper is Wanda of my Baker's Dozen teammates...Congrats, Wanda!!! This is the card of Wanda's that I cased called Happily Ever After Engagement Card. I used the same stamp set and same layout but changed the colors, added the popped up flower and changed the sentiment. 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD254 to the keywords section when you upload your card so we can find your creations!!
