Color Throwdown Challenge #375

Hello everyone...I hope you are having a good week!!! We have had some beautiful days around here!! The temps have been in the 60's and 70's. The problem with that is the plants and trees think it's spring and start to bloom...then when it gets colder and we have a freeze, we loose all the flowers and fruit. What a bummer!! Hopefully, we won't have a freeze and spring comes early!! Anyway....

It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!! It's my turn to host the challenge and I have picked some bright, springy colors!!! I hope to see lots of flowers, birds, trees, and fun critters in the CTD gallery this week!!!

My card features the cute Stampin Up! set called Circle of Spring...I haven't played with my SU goodies for ages. I love this wreath set!! The wreath, popped up fussy cut flowers, and the fussy cut bow were all stamped with Memento Gray Flannel and colored with Copics. The sentiment is from the same set and orange rhinestones were added to the flower centers. Plain and simple but great for mailing...this will go in the mail tomorrow for my friend's birthday. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD375 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #375 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
