Color Throwdown Challenge #368

Hello everyone!! First I want to thank all our Veterans for their service...we are free today because of their sacrifice!!! My dad, husband, son-in-law, brother-in-law, niece, two uncles, a great uncle who fought in Europe during WWI, four first cousins, and several second cousins all served in the Navy, Army, and Air Force and I am extreemly proud of each of them!!! 

Today's Color Throwdown Challenge hostess in Lori and she picked a beautiful color combo for your stamping pleasure!! When I first saw the colors I thought Christmas but as I started playing with papers and dies my project took on a life of it's ended up as a love note for my hubs!! 

My card features the Taylored Expressions Scribble Flowers dies. They were used to cut the flowers out of Cherry Pop and Strawberry Milkshake cardstock....they were then popped up with foam tape.  The background patterned paper background was cut with the largest Stitched Rectangle Stacklet die and the Bloomers Greenery dies were used to cut the leaves out of Sweet Basil cardstock. One of the Stitched Rectangle Stacklets dies was used to cut the sentiment layer out of Poppy Seed cardstock and... 

to finish it off, the Pockets & Pages February Script dies were used to cut the sentiment out of Strawberry Milkshake cardstock. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD368 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #368 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.

Joan this is absolutely wonderful! I really love how you layered all the flower elements and the wonderful looks of the sentiments - it has a hand lettering look to it with the way you placed it on the gray panel! So fun!!
