Color Throwdown #47

Good morning!!! Today is Color Throwdown day!! Danielle is our hostess today and her colors rock! Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise, and Kiwi Kiss (or a lime green).
I started looking through my DP and ran across DCWV paper pad called Garden Party. It's been a while since I used any paper from this collection and it works pretty well, only I'm using Certainly Celery for my green. My focal image is from Flourishes' DIY Topiary set, stamped on Gina K Pure Luxury 80lb paper, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Copic markers and is popped up on 3M foam squares. I dressed it up with some paper piercing, a ribbon, a button, and some linen thread. Kind of simple but I like how it turned out.
