Color Throwdown

Hi everyone! There's another Color Throwdown Challenge on board and you are going to LOVE Bar's great springtime colors! 

Gorgeous colors...right?!  No big surprise that I couldn't resist going with flowers. 

I used Blush Blossom CS (yep, still have it in my archive stash!) then layered a white panel stamped with a French script BG stamp in Blush Blossom ink.  The sentiment was sponged with Pretty in Pink ink while it was still in the Nestie, then it was layered over a Martha Stewart doily tag.  Several MFT Die-Namics were used for added embellishments: fishtail flags, rolled roses, and small leafy flourish.

I hope you'll play along with us...if you do, remember you don't have to use exact colors.  Just use something close.  If you upload to a public gallery, be sure and use the key words CTD239.  Also, link up your card on the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.
