It’s Color Throwdown time!

CTD112

Welcome to Color Throwdown #112. This week our wonderful color palette was chosen by Barbara and our challenge is being sponsored by Pixie Petals. One lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to the Pixie Petal Etsy store! Check out all the beautiful handmade embellishments there!

I used these lovely crocheted flowers and jumbo brads for centers. The red ribbon comes packaged with a little string of pearls tied around it so I used the larger one for the center of my red flower. The pretty ribbon is all crinkly and fun! I love the texture and the great bow it made. The patterned papers are both from Papertrey ink and I used a leaf image from Turning a New Leaf and sentiment from Through the Trees also from Papertrey ink.

This was simple but fun card to make. The bold flowers really make a statement and not much else is needed! Make sure you check out the Color Throwdown blog for details and inspiration! Check out our design team member below too and see the awesome samples they created!
