Color Throwdown #114

Happy Wednesday :]  It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge (CTD114) and I'm your hostess today!  I selected a fun palette for you to work with that can used in so many ways:
This is what I came up with:
I used one of my new collections of paper from the October My Time Made Easy release - Coffee Beans...it was also my inspiration for today's colors!  I saw a photo online a couple of months ago that had this combination and I fell in love!  The pretty contrast is right up my alley! 

I chose to use Jen Del Muro's SFYTT from Saturday for my layout:
I took a little liberty with my heart layer and created a tea bag tag that hangs over the edge of my mug.  I stamped the word "Tea" on my acrylic tag, stamped a daisy in white Staz On behind it, painted it with yellow acrylic paint (from the back) and added a brown, punched daisy to make it more visible.   I chose to have my mug just make an appearance on the main panel vs showing the full cup :]  I added a spoon to my cup and also stamped a flourish for my steam.  All of the patterned paper is from the same, MTME Coffee Beans collection.
Okay, so be sure to check out our awesome DT's projects as well as our Guest Designer, Carla Suto's SCS gallery!  If you play along, please add a direct link to your post using InLinkz on the CTD blog and use keyword CTD114 in any online galleries.
