Color Throwdown Challenge #294

Hello everyone!!! Broni is the hostess for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge and I just love the pretty summery colors she picked!!! The inspiration photo reminds me that school is almost out and the Grands will be bugging Gramps to take them to the, swimming, boating...what fun!!! Anyway...

I have had this Waltzingmouse sentiment set called Light of the World sitting on my table for a's about time I inked it up!!! A Cherry Lynn die was used for the vine and a little sewing was done around the edges. The Authentique paper called Flourish had the perfect colors for this weeks challenge and the KaiserCraft ribbon roses and hemp cording finish it off.  My camera is really won't capture the aqua color. The color always comes out looking turquoise but IRL it looks like coastal cabana.

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 CTD294 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

LOVE this gorgeous card, Joan! Perfect DP and the gauzy roses are so beautiful! I can remember building forts in the house on a rainy day when my kids were young! It provided hours of "camping" entertainment.
