Color Throwdown #46

Good morning, folks! Today is Color Throwdown day--and I get to pick the colors! I decided to go with some pastels: Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, Bashful Blue, and I tossed in Ballet Blue for kicks ;-)

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue and DP from the Delicate Dots DSP collection. The focal image uses Verve's Flowers Plain Jane, was stamped on Whisper White with Ballet Blue and was matted with Bashful Blue. Then I added a section of DP that I tore at an angle for a little variety. Some Prima flowers and punched leaves, and some accent pearls finish it off.

C'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use Mr. Linky to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD46 so we can see your beauty all in one place. We've changed things a bit, so take a look at this post for an explanation. Hope to see you there!
