Color Throwdown Challenge #179

Happy {belated} Valentine's Day, my friends ♥  I'm hosting the Color Throwdown Challenge this week, so I'm here to share my palette and my card!  I kept the colors girly in honor of the special day...plus they came straight from my new MTME digital paper pack, Candy Kisses, so it was a bonus ;]  Check it out:
I love this soft palette that can easily be bold if you hone in on the Poppy Parade ;]  I was feeling extra feminine when I created my card so I leaned toward the softer side...especially after I saw Chupa's awesome sketch for this week (Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #49)!  She has such a talent for whipping up sketches that are fun and easy to work with!
I cut my branch and my flowers from the Branching Out cut file  My sentiment is from the Sensational Sentiment set, and I stamped on half of the vellum Framed Elegance cut file.  It's hard to read, but I didn't want my sentiment to be dark and contrasting in a way that takes away from the softness of my card.
I stitched my floral panel and my sentiment panel to a piece of patterned paper from my Serenity pack, careful to avoid stitching over my words.  I also punched a butterfly form a scrap of poppy colored music notes paper I recolored from my Wistful Musical Magic pack, and stitched it directly to my cs.  I adhered my branch and blooms with glue dots.
That's all I have for you today, but be sure to swing by the rest of the CTD gals' blogs for a ton of creative mojo!
