Color Throwdown #214

swatch 214

We’re up to Color Throwdown #214 this week and Joan is our gorgeous hostess with the most-est!  She found these lovely sunflower bouquets to inspire us this week with these colors.  If you like ‘em too, why not stop over at the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and play along!


I was SO inspired by the sunflowers that I decided to pull out my purty Sunflowers stamp set from Flourishes for today’s challenge, and used the iSpy sketch #37 for this week as inspiration for the layout.  I stamped the sunflower in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Flourishes Classic White cardstock, also using it for the card base.  I colored with Copics from the Sunflower, Evergreen and Flesh Tones 2 collections from Flourishes.  I accented with a sentiment flag with a button, and a white twill bow.
