Color Throwdown Meets SFYTT

It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge (Tammy is our hostess with the mostest) and I'm happy to see that Jen is bringing back her Sketch For You To Try challenge over on the Reverse Confetti blog! So...I decided to combine the two! I'll admit I struggled pairing up the coral and hot pink colors, so you'll have to look closely - the only pink is in the one rhinestone. :-)  I sponged a subtle background using Daffodil Delight ink and a honeycomb stencil.  I managed to scrounge up one last sheet of Barely Banana CS in my retired SU stash.

What else did I use?
STAMPS: Peacock Pretties by Reverse Confetti.
PAPER: Barely Banana, Kiwi Kiss, White.
INK: Groovy Guava, Kiwi Kiss, Daffodil Delight, Black
ACCESSORIES: Corner chomper, Rhinestones, Baker's twine by pinkpaislee, Framed Tags One by Spellbinders.
We'd love to see what you create using this fun color palette!  If you don't have the exact colors, just use something close.   If you upload to a public gallery, be sure and use the key words CTD245.  Also, link up your card on the Color Throwdown blog using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.  For more inspiration, check out the other designers' creations...including our new and talented June guest designer, Wanda Guess...WELCOME!
