Color Throwdown Challenge #132

Hi friends.  It's hard to believe it's only Wednesday.  It feels like this week has lasted a month already...go figure!  I won't share my woes, but instead will share a very fresh palette of color that our hostess, Broni selected for the Color Throwdown gals today! 
Isn't it gorgeous?!  It's also very similar to the colors I used in my Romance paper pack that I released last month at My Time Made Easy, so it was pretty easy for me to come up with my card :]  The Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO181) influenced my layout, which made my card even easier to whip up! 
I used the Bold Botanicals set from MTME for my bloom, and layered the tulip and some leaves with dimensional tape.  Here's a close up.
I used my new MTME Cornice Trimmed Circle for my main panel, and the Border Builders Elegance Scallop for my scalloped edges.  My sentiment is from the new MTME Keep Strong set.  I layered and adhered my panels and prettied them up with part of a pearl flourish from Zva Creative and some pearl strips from Recollections.
If you play along with us this week, be sure to post a direct link to your project using the Linky Tools widget on the CTD blog.  If you don't have these exact colors, just use whatever you have that comes close :]  Before you get started, check out the beauties our team came up with!  They created some stunners as usual ♥

Never knew this sentiment could mean as much as it does, lately. Life sure is FUNNY! {?} Whatever chaos is floating your way - SO NOT FAIR! But you are SO amazing, graceful and CRAFTY, so do not fret, my dear. TIME is amazing and SO are you! THIS card, for example - is positively dreamy. When I gaze upon it's beauty, I know that ALL things are worth the journey!

Hang in there, dear!
