Color Throwdown Challenge #255

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!!  My sweet friend, Broni, is the hostess this week and she has picked a palette full of bright, happy colors!!! All I could think of when I saw the colors was a plate full of different flavored cupcakes...I don't know why except maybe I was craving a cupcake at the time...LOL!!! 

My card features the sweet little cupcake stamps and sentiment from Taylored Expressions For the Love of Cupcakes set. The cupcakes were all paper pieced with papers from my scrap box, cutout and popped up with foam tape onto the Label Stacklets 4 from Taylored Expressions. The background paper is from the My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy 6x6 paper pad ...sewing and distressing was done around the edges. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and the buttons and twine finish it off. 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors...use what you have as long as it's close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD255 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
