Color Throwdown #103 & CAS-Tastic Wednesday

Are you ready for another Color Throwdown Challenge? Tammy chose this week's colors and I love 'em!!
It's also CAS-tastic Wednesday and the challenge for this week is to use bling!

I had so much fun making this card! First thing I did was to reach for my Webster's Pages 6 x 6 collections--I thought I remembered that these colors were in one of them and sure 'nuff they were. Simple, simple layout, letting the paper do most of the work. All I had to do was add the bling and I decided a rolled flower, using MFT's Rolled Flower Die-namics die and some die cut leaves would be just the ticket to round things out.

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 CTD103 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
