Color Throwdown Challenge #275

Hello everyone!! Welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge! Wanda is the hostess this week and I absolutely love the colors she picked...they are sooo pretty and springy!!!  I can almost smell the lavender!!!

I used one of the foliage stamps from the new Paper Smooches Botanicals 2 set with Garden Green ink to create the leaves and the flowers were punched from Almost Amethyst and Wisteria Wonder card stock. The background paper is retired Stampin Up! and the button and hemp finish it off. The sketch is the Sweet Sundsy Sketch #202
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 CTD275 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You can find out all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
