Color Throwdown

Hey, everyone!  It's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge - inspired by this stunning butterfly photo chosen by Monika for our inspiration!

I went with one of my fave "go to" layouts and used stamps from 3 different Reverse Confetti sets: Petals and Posies, Whole Lotta Dots and Arrows 'n Elements.  I also threw in a Gorgeous Grunge (SU) image with the green striped border.  I decided to use TH distress inks that were close to the colors: Seedless Preserves, Mowed Lawn and Spun Sugar (these ink names always make me smile :-).  I looped some silver thread under the flowers and actually restrained myself from adding sequins - lol!  This is one of those generic cards that I'll add to my stash and will add a sentiment to the inside as needed.

Our guest star stamper this week is Anita Bowden, so be sure and check out her creation at Neet and CraftyPlay along with us this week and you just might be in the spotlight next week!  You don't have to have exact colors to play along, but you do need to have a close resemblence.  Be sure and link your creation to the linky tool at the bottom of the current challenge post on the Color Throwdown blog.
