Color Throwdown #287
Hello friends! Well, another week has flown by and we’ve got another Color Throwdown challenge to share with you. Lori is our hostess this week, and she found this beautiful Spring centerpiece with some soft pastels for you to try. Very similar colors to last week, but I think the paler colors make it just different enough. I hope you’ll give it a try!
Here’s my card…
I actually colored this image over the weekend, and then realized it would work pretty well for my card today along with this sweet Pebbles “Garden Party” paper I recently got. I took some inspiration from the Retro Sketch #109 this week for the layout. The image I used is from A Day for Daisies.
And speaking of this past weekend, over half of the members of the Color Throwdown team actually got together for a stamping good time in Virginia at the home of Barbara Anders! We had SO. MUCH. FUN!!! We stamped, and ate, and laughed, and ate, and stamped, and ate, and laughed, and had a BLAST! Here we are on Sunday morning after we had breakfast buffet, before we all said goodbye…
Broni, Vickie and Wanda are all lucky enough to live within 2-3 hours of Barbara’s home, but my drive is 7 hours! My husband wasn’t able to go with me, so my best friend from here at home went with me instead, and Heather (she’s front and center in the purple shirt) was graciously welcomed as our CTD “mascot” for the weekend! LOL As a special treat, we asked her to join us this week for the CTD challenge, and she’s so ambitious she made two cards!
Heather doesn’t have a blog, so I hope you’ll leave her some love in a comment here and I’ll make sure she’s sees it!
For more inspiration, please visit my Throwdown sisters…
