Color Throwdown

Hi everyone! I'm happy to say I'm the hostess this week for the Color Throwdown Challenge and I'm hoping you will love this color palette - golden yellow, navy and white - as much as I do! I was inspired by these wedding cakes and thought the colors could be used for SOOO many different card themes!  Initially, I was going to go with a a classy wedding card, but those cascades of flowers drew me in a different direction in the end!  

I adhered the striped patterned paper from Echo Park's Splendid Sunshine pad, then raised a white CS panel with foam tape.  I loosely adhered navy and vellum die cut leaves (large and small Mariana Vine dies by Poppystamps) then added layered die cut posies by Lil' Inker Designs.  The layered sentiment and tag are dies by Reverse Confetti.  I rounded a couple of the card corners using the 1/4" corner chomper setting.

Be sure to visit our guest star stamper - Linda Beeson from the Paper Cutting Kind of Day blog!

Sadly, we say goodbye to Amy Rohl who has been an awesome inspiration as our guest designer this month!  Stay tuned next week when we announce our new May guestie.
To get all the details on how to play along, please go to the Color Throwdown blog and check out the info on the right sidebar!  You can also check out the rest of the design teams' creations for more inspiration on the CTD blog or you can clink on their blog links below.
