Color Throwdown Challenge #264

Hello everyone!! It's Wednesday again and you know what that's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! This week it's Broni's turn to host the challenge and she has picked such beautiful colors.....I love the clothes in the inspiration picture, too!!!!  

My card features stamps from a Taylored Expressions fall stamp set called Celebrate Life. Pool Party and Calypso Coral markers were used to add color to the dandelion stamp prior to stamping it on the Choice Snow White card stock and the sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy.  A piece of Calypso Coral was sewn along the edge and then the twine and button were added. The silver punched and dry embossed butterfly finishes it off. 

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 CTD264 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
