CTD205 Sweetest Things

Hi everyone! Here's my card for today's Color Throwdown challenge. Joan is our hostess this week and she picked white, pool party, lucky limeade, wisteria wonder and pumpkin pie (or you can use something close to those colors).  Click HERE to see the inspiration photo on the Color Throwdown blog.


For my card I used certainly celery, cool caribbean, almost amethyst, and pumpkin pie.  The rolled flowers were made with an MFT Die-namics, the leaves were cut with a PTI die and embossed with my Swiss Dots embossing folder, the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch, and the cool caribbean frame was cut with a romantic rectangles die from Spellbinders. The sentiment is from MFT's Polka Dot Greetings set.

Here are links to my CTD team so you can check out some more color inspiration...
