Celebrate - Color Throwdown #81

Woohoo! It's Color Throwdown day!! Kristin's our host today and she's got some colors I just LUV:
Another CAS card for me today.

First, I stamped the sentiment from Say It With Style on the Dark Chocolate base with Fresh Snow ink and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. Then I stamped the leaf image from Blooming Button Bits on Stampers Choice white card stock with Old Olive and cut it out with a Labels Four Nestabilities die. Next I added the buttons and attached the strip of patterned paper from Basic Grey's Porcelain 6 x 6 pad. A poofy flower from more DP and a single leaf from the stamp set finished it off!

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD81 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! And be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week!
