Color Throwdown Challenge #381

Hello everyone!! We have been having such beautiful weather...I planted some Pansies and cleaned out some flower beds this week. We had a little rain last night and expect some more tomorrow with temps down in the 40's...I guess our warm weather was just a tease!! Anyway...since spring is on hold outside, I decided to create some spring flowers on the inside!! This week's Color Throwdown Challenge hostess is Wanda and she has picked some soft, pretty colors for us to play with: pale green, pink, and kraft. 

The Taylored Expressions Scribble Flowers dies were used to cut the flowers and stems out of Cupcake, Toffee, and Mint Julep cardstock. They were adhered to the background watercolor paper that was watercolored with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. 

The sentiment was created with the Think Happy Thoughts Stamp and Die Combo and a little sewing was done under the flowers....the TE Sequins - Hello Happiness finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD381 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #381 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. 
You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
