Color Throwdown Challenge #107

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I'm happy to announce I'm the hostess with the mostess of the Color Throwdown challenge (CTD107) today.  Check out our palette...so fresh:
Here's my take on my colors...
I was inspired by this patterned paper collection, but I don't own it...so, being a paper desinger, I created a collection that I could use :]
This is a SNEAK PEEK of a pack we're releasing on the 1st, so I can't link to it. I used the Killer Curves stamp set (again :), and the So Sentimental set for my sentiment on the front and the inside. 
For the main floral image, I stamped the silhouette flower in white Staz-On on textured acetate (Print Works) and colored them with Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks.  HUGE thanks to Lauren for the idea and the supplies :O)
My layout came from the Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO153)...and I took the liberty of modifying it slightly...but it totally worked for my card :]
Please be sure to swing by our CTD sistah's blogs and our sistah of the month, Chupa.  You're sure to be inspired!


Sure hope you can play along with us this week!  If you do, please post a direct link to your project using the InLinkz widget on the CTD blog.  You don't have to use the exact colors in the palette...just try to come close :O)

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back on Friday for our JUGS challenge...

This is one classy card, lady! I love how you work those dramatic deep colors like the rose red here. And, I love that you "needed" a paper so you just up and designed it! You are amazing!
