Color Throwdown Challenge #331

Hello everyone!!! I hope you are all safe and warm on this cold winter morning!! It seems like most of the US is either cold, wet, or covered in snow!! Sounds like a good day to cook a pot of stew, make a pan of corn bread, and stamp!!! This weeks 
Color Throwdown Challenge is hosted by Jodi and she has picked such a pretty pallette of fresh and springy!! 

My card features several Taylored Expressions dies and the beautiful sentiment from TE's Discover Your Wings stamp set. 

Taylored Expressions Bloom Where You're Planted and Bugabee Flowers dies were used for the flowers and the TE Leafy Branch die was used for the leaves. Enamel dots were added to the flower centers as the finishing touch. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD331 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

Gorgeous splashes of color against this soft kraft background. Loving the dies, and what a perfect color choice for the gray & white weather so much of the USA has had. We went from snow yesterday to 60F & sunshine today. Melted the snow. I'm ready for spring. TFS & thanks for your recent visit & kind comment. Hope I can find time to play with these colors - as they are so happy. Hugs & Happy wkend.
