CTD214 Friend 2 Friend

I'm so excited to share today's Color Throwdown colors with you.  Joan has picked this AWESOME color combo for us.....mmmm mmmm, oh how I love blue and yellow together!!....especially this brilliant blue color.  Check it out...


Here's my card...


I used the new Sentimental Favorites set that was just released by Flourishes.  It's stamped in Chipped Sapphire Ranger Distress Ink on Classic White CS and cut out with a Spellbinders die.  I didn't have any Summer Sun left so I used Barely Banana for my flowers and the die-cut flag.  The flowers were made using MFT's Mini Royal Roses Die-namics, the Old Olive leaves were cut with a die from PTI (which I can't find in their store right now...maybe they're out??), the die-cut flag is from Lil' Inker Designs, and the Marigold twine is from The Twinery.

You can find more color inspiration from the girls on the CTD Blog or by hopping through their individual blogs. Check them out....

This is gorgeous, Denise! Love the simple layout with those pretty flowers! (And sorry I'm late with comments for last week... started leaving them when I was at work last Friday, but then got RUDELY sidetracked when I was required to get up and go WORK!)
