Color Throwdown Challenge #301

Hello everyone...hope all is well with you!! It has been raining here the last couple of days which is sooo wonderful!!! My little flowers are all perked up and smiling and the grass and trees are still green which is strange for the middle of July in Texas!! Our garden has really produced this year...we have broccoli, sweet corn, melons, tomatoes, cabbage, potatoes, green peppers, green beans, onions, carrots, cucumbers, 3 kinds of squash....I have been eating, freezing and canning my head off!!! Last night the hubs told me he is planning a winter yi yi!!! He better call rent-a-wife when that one is ready because I think I'll be on strike...LOL!!!  Anyway....

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! This week it's Wanda's turn at the helm and I just love the pretty colors she picked...perfect for flowers!!

My card features the flower stamps from WPlus9's Spring Blooms set and the WPlus9 graphic set called Just Geometrics: Triangles that was used in the background. A diecut frame from my sweet friend Annette Allen was used along with the Memory Box happy die and the birthday stamp from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics set....the washi tape, sequins, and the twine 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 CTD301 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.

Anne Temple said...

This is gorgeous! Love how the soft background really makes those flowers pop. Great design too.

Tammy said...

Oh wow, gorgeous card and fabulous colors and layout!

Wanda Cullen said...

OMGoodness, Joan, this is gorgeous!! Love everything about it! You made me laugh at the rent-a-wife comment. Canning/freezing and even processing fresh veggies just to eat is a LOT of hard work! I grew up with a mom who canned and froze lots of stuff, but I haven't carried on the tradition very well.

Hi Joan, lovely card with lots of detail without being too fussy. Colours are great together and your layout is wonderful x

Monika/Buzsy said...

Becky said...

Angel said...

Great design! Love the flowers, Washi tape and all that twine!

Maria said...

Love the pop of color with the flowers against the soft background! Great use of washi tape, too!

Tammy Hershberger said...

BEAUTIFUL card, Joan! I just LOVE those flowers!

I'm jealous of your harvest! If I lived closer I'd come over and help you... I love canning and freezing!

Lori said...

Great design! Love the mix of the graphic triangles with the pretty florals.
