Color Throwdown

 Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Color Throwdown and Broni has chosen this great summery combo for us: turquoise, hot pink, gray and white!  When I saw the bedspread, I knew I wanted to use PTI's quatrefoil die for the background.

I then added a Stitched Fishtail Flag and layered the Leafy Flourish die on top (both dies by My Favorite Things).  The flowers are from Pretty Peonies by WPlus Nine - stamped with Sweet Gelato - and love the coordinating dies that make it so easy to do some flower arranging!  The leaves were stamped using WPlus9's Fairy Dust ink (a very pale gray) then the outline stamp was with Beanstalk (just had to sneak in a wee bit of green) - both Pure Color inks from the same company.  The 'hello' die is also by WPlus9.
