Color Throwdown

Hello everyone! Hope you're enjoying some slightly warmer temps...I know I sure am!  
 It's Wednesday, so that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge and Lori has a fabulous combo for us this week!

 I also wanted to play along with Jen's Deconstructed Sketch Challenge, so created this layered tag using some new (to me) dies from Flourishes.  I just love the combination of embossing and piercing that these dies accomplish!  The burlap flower is from Little Yellow Bicycle.  Instead of the stark green felt leaves that came with it, I exchanged it with some Foliage die cut leaves by Spellbinders and sponged the edges with Certainly Celery ink.  I also didn't care for the naked buttons, so added some jute twine.  So, there you have it...a quick and simple tag!

Remember, you don't have to use exact colors to play along...just something close.  Be sure and label your project with CTD233 if you upload to a public gallery.  You'll need to link up on the Color Throwdown blog as well. Can't wait to see what you create with these gorgeous colors!  While you're there, be sure and check out the rest of the design team's can visit their blogs below.
