Color Throwdown Challenge #310

Hello everyone!! I hope you are all having a happy hump day!!! Things have been pretty quiet around here this sister was here last week so we spent most of our days with Mom and Dad. We are so blessed that they are happy and healthy....well sorta for being 91 and 94!! Anyway....

Aren't this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge colors pretty!! Wanda is our hostess and I love the soft palette of summery colors she picked!! I decided to work with the flower theme by using the Gathered Blooms Cutting Plate from Taylored Expressions.

Three Gathered Blooms diecuts were each of the challenge colors. The pistachio pudding layer was used as the base and the flowers from the crisp cantaloupe and coastal cabana diecuts were cutout and adhered to the base layer.  It was then adhered to the white layer and then to the crisp cantaloupe cardbase. The TE Band It 2 diecut was adhered with foam dots and the hemp was adhered to the back of the sentiment layer..... the sentiment is from the TE From Me To You set and the pearls  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 CTD310 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.
