The bug got me and it's time for another Color Throwdown

I was brought down by a stomach bug and out of commission for a few days. I didn't get much rest unfortunately though as I was nursing two sick kids while I was sick myself, so I think I need to have a work from home day and send the kid off to school so I can fully recouperate!

It's Color Throwdown 47 and since I'm hosting I couldn't let anyone down...so the trooper that I am, I gritted my teeth through the pain and got my card done. Okay, it wasn't that bad! This weeks colors, Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise, and Kiwi Kiss (or any lime) was inspired by this lovely Crate Paper I found in my stash.

This adorable teddy bear is from Elzybells. I colored it with Prismas and oms and dotted the flowers with some Stickles. The flowers are from Prima and the coral matches the Cameo Coral exactly! The ribbon is Aqua Mist from PTI and was a lovely match as well. Both patterned papers are from Crate Paper and the tan is the flip side of the striped paper.

Here's a close up where you can see some of the sparkle.
