Color Throwdown Challenge #326

Hello everyone!! It's Wednesday again and you know what that's time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Vickie is our hostess and don't you just love the pretty springy colors she picked!!!! I think we all are wishing for an early spring...the only bad thing about spring around here is the Ceder. The trees spew out their pollen and that makes us all sneeze, cough and sputter!!! Thank goodness for antihistamines...LOL!!! Anyway....

This weeks colors are bright pink, light pink, blue, and green. 

I went with the softer side of the colors...the sweet little birds from the WPlus9 Love Birds set were stamped with Soft Sky and Pool Party for the shading. Pear Pizzazz and Pretty in Pink were used on the branch and soft clouds were sponged in the background with Soft Sky. The patterned paper is called Garden Party from Pebbles.......sewing was done along the edges and the banners were hand cut. 

The sentiment is from the same set and the Baker's Twine and pearls for the eyes 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 CTD326 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.
