Color Throwdown

Hello blog friends!  I hope everyone is having a great week!  Vickie has a bright and happy color palette for the Color Throwdown Challenge this week!  I struggled without any green, but kept to the colors by using white leaves.  :-)  The inspiration photo had flowers, so it was a given that I would choose flowers as well.  Here's my take on it...

I splattered some Dusty Concord distress ink on the card base then layered patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs' "Sunkissed" 6x6 pad.  The leaves were cut using SU's Sizzlets Little Leaves die.  The florals - MFT Flashy Florals - were stamped, die cut with coordinating Flashy Florals Die-Namics then popped with foam tape.  The sentiment die and stamp are from WPlus9's Hand Lettered Hello set.  It's hard to see the shine in the photo, but I added Black Enamel Accents to the flower centers.

INK: Grape Soda (Reverse Confetti); Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry - all by SU; Versafine Onyx Black.
