Color Throwdown

It's Wednesday and that means another Color Throwdown Challenge is on board!  

Broni has chosen a scrumptious color combination!

I have to admit there's only a wee bit of apricot on this card (in the flower centers) because I totally forgot it until the end.  Does anyone have senior moments like that?  I added it by coloring the centers with an apricot Copic marker! IS in there! :-)  I used the sketch for the Sweet Sunday Challenge.  I've had these large square rhinestones for a long time and thought they would some pizzazz.  

I hope you'll find time to play along with us...if you do, remember you don't have to use exact colors.  Just use something close.  If you upload to a public gallery, be sure and use the key words CTD240.  Also, link up your card on the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.

I'm thrilled to announce that Audrey Ann is our new guest designer for the month of May!  She was my Dirty Dozen "sister" on SCS and I had the privilege of meeting her at a Copic class...what a fun time!  For more inspiration, check out Audrey's blog as well as the rest of the design team's creations below...

This card and your coloring are incredible. I do love hydrangeas so the card appeals to me so much because of that.
