Color Throwdown Challenge #282

Hello everyone!! It's Wednesday again and you know what that's time for this weeks Color Throwdown challenge!!!! Vickie is our hostess and she has picked such a fun and super awesome color combo for us to play with!!! I am so anxious for Spring that all I could think of for my card was green grass, yellow sunshine, and red apples!!

The cute little apple from Paper Smooches Falling For You set was paper pieced with Echo Park's Dots paper and the sentiment from the same set was stamped on a scrap piece of patterned paper. The *grass* was made with washi tape and the Doodlebug Enamel Dots finish it of. 

I hope these pretty colors inspire you to join our challenge...I'd love to see what you create!!!! 

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 CTD282 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.
