Color Throwdown

Happy hump day! Check out these fabulous colors for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! Vicki has picked this beautiful, serene bedroom for our inspiration and my mind immediately went to images of the sea when I pictured these colors.

I sponged the four colors (Tangerine Tango, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy) onto white CS then layered on a white stitched rectangle panel, then on the embossed kraft base.  This was so quick and easy that it even surprised me! play along, you don't have to use exact colors - just something that's close.  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword CTD 274 and also link up your card on the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool.
