Color Throwdown Challenge #290

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!!! Tammy is the hostess this week and she picked such pretty colors!! Don't you just love the inspiration photo...the old Pyrex dishes sell for big bucks in antique shops!! I remember when one could buy them new for 3-4 dollars....that was a while ago...LOL!!!

My card features several different stamp sets....the background was created with a stamp from Reverse Confetti's Whole Lotta Dots set and the challenge color inks. The flower was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black using stamps from The Craft's Meow's Flower Garden set, and the sentiment is from Verve's Forever in Our Hearts set. the button and hemp cording 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 CTD290 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.
