Color Throwdown



Check out these gorgeous new colors for the Color Throwdown Challenge - hosted by the talented Barbara!


The orange and green colors led me immediately to these fun 3-step stamping sets by PTI.  Then I had to figure out how to incorporate the soft blue and decided to go with SU's French Script BG.  I looped some jute twine behind the floral spray that I fussy cut and popped on foam dots.  Yellow Stickles were added to the centers.  Ever get a tiny over stamped edge when you've rocked a sentiment more than you should?  No problem...bring out the sequins - lol!  They cover a multitude of sins!  

Want some more inspiration from the rest of the design team?  Check them out below...or you can go to the Color Throwdown blog:
