Color Throwdown #150

Hi all, and happy Wednesday :]  I'm here to share a VERY quick card I made for the Color Throwdown challenge.  Laura is our hostess and she selected this pretty palette:
I used the colors quite literally, which I normally try NOT to do, but like I said...this was a quick card and I LOVED all of the colors together.  So, I decided to just go with it.  I cut the frame using the MTME Killer Curves cut file, and then embossed it with one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders (birds and vines...not sure of the actual name).  I tied a teal, satin bow around the right side and popped it up with dimensional tape on a 4.25"x4.25" card base.  
My flower was created by cutting the pieces from my Fluttering By paper using the Blossoming Into Spring cut file.  I only worked with four of the flower pieces for my bloom, but I popped all of them up with dimensional tape except for the base and the top layer.  Before I adhered them, I sponged a pale pink followed by a rose red and stitched a teal button to the top layer.  I adhered the flower to my card with glue dots...and as you can see, that's literally all there was to my card.  Simple, but fresh...and sentiment free so I can use if for a myriad of occasions that pop up.  

We hope you're able to find some crafty time this week and can play along.  Remember, you don't have to match these colors exactly, just use the closest colors you have on hand.  Also, be sure to add a direct link to your post using the Linky Tools widget on the CTD blog.  Last but certainly not least, check out our CTD gals for a healthy dose of inspiration today:

Thanks for stopping by, despite my MIA status recently :|  Hope your summer is relaxing and happy ♥
