Color Throwdown #339

Hello everyone!!! It's my turn to host the Color Throwdown and I have picked a very limited pallette...white, black, and yellow. My first thought was to do bees but this color combo would also look great with flowers, sunbursts, silhouettes, butterflies...what ever strikes your fancy!!! 

My card features several dies and an embossing folder from Taylored Expressions. 
The background was created with the TE Walking in Sunshine embossing folder and lemon Meringue cardstock. White craft ink was applied to the raised areas and polka dot paper was cutout and popped up over the *sun* area. The bees were cut out with the TE Little Bits - Bumble Bee dies. Black pearls were added for the eyes and the curly trails were cut out with the TE Little Bits - Confetti and Candle dies. 

The clouds were cutout with one of the TE Cloud Stacklets dies and the divided sentiment was created with the Mini Caps Alpha and #'s Dies and the *Happy* die from the Think Happy Thoughts Stamp and Die Combo.

Remember, be sure to add CTD339 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your cretions!! Also, please use #ctd339 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. 

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