Color Throwdown #118

Hi friends!  I'mmmm baaaaack...with my Color Throwdown (CTD118) project!  Today Broni is our brilliant hostess who selected a lovely palette! 
This was a fun one for sure...it just sang to me.  I have another card almost finished with this same palette.  Hope to get that done tomorrow ;]  In the meantime, I'll share my first card.  I made this for a dear friend (seriously) at work.  Yep...I went straight back to the burnt edged flowers because I'm head over heels for them!  Love flowers anyway, but being able to make my own VERY COOL 3-D flowers, is so appealing to me...I just couldn't resist when I went to use cherry cobbler.  I bought some satin ribbon at AC Moore during lunch just to make this card.  It's not exactly cherry cobbler, but it's close...and it coordinates beautifully with two of my digi paper patterns:  Fresh Fabric Collection 2, and School Plaid Collection 2 (the Candied Apple sheet in both).  I also used the Mugwart sheet in Fresh Fabric Collection 1 for the panel supporting my bloom.
I also bought a pearl flourish from AC Moore today.  It was a LARGE flourish, so I just trimmed the section I wanted to use on my card and adhered it before I added dimensionals and adhered my layers. The sentiment is from MTME So Sentimental and I used the SU label punch along with MTME Trendy Tags Set 1.
The layout is from this week's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO164).
Okay, I'm WHIPPED!  Teacher conferences first thing tomorrow and an office luncheon.  It will be a good day, but I need some zzzzz's to enjoy it :O)

Please swing by the very talented CTD gals' blogs along with our guest designer!  They have some beauties this week!!
