Color Throwdown Challenge #83

OMG, it's so hard to believe it has been a week since the last CTD challenge!  Feels like it was just yesterday.  I guess time FLIES when we have a My Time Made Easy release!  What a whirlwind of fun, FANTASTIC projects by the team!  Speaking of fantastic team projects, wait until you see what the CTD girls cooked up for you today!  I'm so lucky to work with such talent, let me tell you!!

This week is being hosted by Tammy!  Check out this playful palette she chose:
Awesome, right?!  To top it off, Kitchen Sink Stamps is sponsoring us this week.  I chose to work with their "Hey Chick" stamp set.  The little chickies in this set were just too adorable to pass up!  If you haven't worked with these stamps, the concept is so clever.  They sell different "layers" for each stamp for you to use different shades of the same color ink to achieve a perfectly colored image.  Check out my chick and my eggshell:
I used four stamps & inks to create the one chick...and I used three to create the eggshell.  Neat, huh?  The sentiment is TOTALLY my style :)  Ha ha...♥ it!!  Oh and how absolutely adorable is that little, feather chick I used to stage?!  I LOVE that little guy!!  I received my stamps well in advance, so when Micheals put out their Easter goods and I spied this sweetie, I HAD to have him specifically for this card!  It was so nice to actually use him today :]  Doesn't he look wonderful with these colors surrounding him?!  Speaking of...you may be wondering where my Bermuda Bay is, but rest assured, it's there ;] Check out my sentiment...a-ha!  Bermuda Bay it IS!  LOL
Okay, that's all I have for you today.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you can play along this week!  What better way to bounce into spring than with a fresh and fun color palette from Tammy and a PRIZE from Kitchen Sink Stamps?!  Remember you don't have to use these exact colors, just use the closest colors you have.  Be sure to post a link to your project using InLinkz on the CTD blog and use keyword CTD83 in any online galleries :]

Please stop by the CTD ladies' blogs to check out their awesome projects!  They are a wonderful source of inspiration.
