Color Throwdown Challenge #105


Today is Wednesday which means another fun Color Throwdown challenge!  Bar is our hostess with the mostess this week and she chose an awesome combo:
I decided to go for a very fresh, light look since the colors comprised a darker palette...kind of a challenge to myself.  I did it, but fear I may have went a tad overboard :|  LOL
My card is also missing something...maybe my mojo is taking a break with everything else life is throwing at me right now.  Who knows.  I am in dire need of thank you cards, so I knocked one out and think it's good enough to give away, so I will :] 
I used the Killer Curves stamp set (again) with So Sentimental - both sets from My Time Made Easy.  I also used the Mini Leafy Stripes digi paper that Sara made, and my digi Picket Fence paper - also from MTME.  I colored my silhouette flowers with SU Watercolor Crayons, misted them with water, and pressed to the Pretty Pieces Killer Curves Cut File (I designed for MTME).  I stamped the frame and the sentiment using SU Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant, and Always Artichoke ink.  I cut the bottom, Picket Fence panel using the Build a Border - Scallop Dot Cut File (I designed for MTME).

I used the There She Goes sketch #67 (TSG67) for my layout.
Hope you can join us this week at the Color Throwdown!  I can't wait to see what you come up with...show me how to knock it out of the park with this palette ;]  Maybe I'll take another stab at the colors this week!  Remember, you don't have to use these exact colors, just try to come as close as possible.

Be sure to check out the rest of our amazing design team as well!  They are sure to inspire, as they always do ♥
