Color Throwdown Challenge #325

Hello everyone....hope all is well with you!!! We had my parents 70th wedding anniversary party on was sooo wonderful to have my family all together along with lots of friends to celebrate!!! My sistar and her family came from Iowa....they will be going home to the frozen north this afternoon. They sure would like to stay for a while especially since our temps are up in the 50''s a heat wave...LOL!!!!  Anyway....

It's Wednesday and time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!! Tammy is our hostess and she has picked a real pretty color pallette for us to play with!!

My card features several Reverse Confetti stamp and die sets along with the January RC SFYTT #20. The sentiments which were stamped with Memento Gray Flannel are from Lots to Say and Fabulous Flamingo. The flowers are from the Petals 'n Posies set and they were stamped with Memento Tangelo...the leaves were stamped with Pool Party.

The dies include Doin' the Wave Confetti Cuts, Tag Me, Too, and the Petals and Posies coordinating dies. The banner was hand cut and the enamel dots and Baker's 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 CTD325 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
