Color Throwdown Challenge #278

Hello everyone!! It's my turn to host the Color Throwdown challenge this week and I picked colors that would be perfect for a Valentine, flowers, or a yummy cupcake!! I have lots of family birthdays coming up so I made a girly birthday card with cupcakes!!

My card features the cute little cupcakes from the Reverse Confetti Celebrate Cake set. The cupcake base was stamped with Pink Pirouette and the top was stamped with Pink Pirouette and kissed with Real Red. The sentiment is from the same set and the Taylored Expressions Medium Scallop Border die was used to cut the Pistachio Pudding card stock was embossed with the Dotted Swiss folder and the Baker's Twine, button, and sewing finish 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 CTD278 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.
