Birthday Wishes - CTD # 104

Alrighty! It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge! This week Broni is the host and she's chosen some gorgeous colors.
I decided to use my new CHA free PTI set called Four Of A Kind for this card.

I used a pretty simple layout, stamped the leaves in Old Olive, the flowers in Tangerine Tango and added some golden yellow flat backed pearls to the centers. Since I don't have anything in Daffodil Delight, I used PTIs Summer Sunrise Saddle Stitched ribbon.

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 CTD104 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week and please welcome Iwona Palamountain--better known as Chupa, as our August Guest Designer!
