Color Throwdown Challenge #353

Hello everyone!! Hope all is well with you and your's!!! We are actually Grands till Friday!! I have been washing sheets and buying groceries for the next wave...LOL!!! I also found time to get in the craft room...Woot!!!!  It's a good thing because today is Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Vickie is our hostess this week and she picked some bright, sunny colors for us to play with!!! 

My card features several Taylored Expressions Dies...three different flower die sets, a sentiment die and a stamp set for the stamped sentiment. Bloomers 1 and Bloomers 2 dies were used for the flowers...they were cut out of plum colored polka dot papers  from Te's For Peep's Sake 6x6 paper pack as was the green strip along the side. The yellow flower was cut out of Doodlebug's Kraft in Color 6x6 paper pad. The leaf dies from the Bloom Where You're Planted die set were used to cut the leaves out of Peapod cardstock and the circle was cut out of paper from the TE Rainbow Brights 6x6 paper pack. 

The Happy die from the Think Happy Thoughts stamp and die combo set was used to cut the sentiment out of Plum Punch cardstock.  The sentiment is from the Goody Goody Gumballs stamp set ... only the birthday part of the sentiment was inked and stamped to create a divided sentiment. Sewing along the green strip and enamel dots finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD353 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd353 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
