Color Throwdown Challenge #176

Happy Wednesday, friends!  I'm popping in to share my lackluster CTD176 card that was the result of my mojo being on hiatus this week :/  This CAS design was inspired by Deb's card found HERE.  Hers is absolutely STUNNING, whereas, mine failed in a few areas that I believe to be obvious so I won't belabor you with explaining.  Instead, I'll thank the ever so talented, Joan for selecting this fantastic color palette that made it a little easier to CASE Deb's card.  If that even makes sense...  Either way, check out this fab combo:
I used my MTME Sentimental Occasions set to build my greeting, and the MTME Bold Botanicals set for my bloom.  My border punch is Recollections (from Michaels) and the butterfly was made using a Martha Stewart punch.  Other than that, it's pretty basic and self-explanatory.  I guess the perk is that this will mail easily unlike most of my other cards :]  LOL

Please be sure to swing by the rest of the team's blogs for some real inspiration!!  They're projects are stunning as usual.

You're far too hard on yourself, Kristin, because this is a lovely card! I know what you mean, though, because I wimped out with mojo on my CTD card as well. Next week we'll rock 'em! LOL!
