So Many Dreams - CTD #132 and MFTWSC #10

OK, I know I keep saying this, but time is flying! It's already Wednesday again, so that means it's Color Throwdown and MFTWSC Challenge day! Broni is our host this week and here are the lovely colors she chose for us to work with:

And here's the MFT sketch for this week.You can find the sketch on the MFT blog and also in the MFT forum on SCS, as well as in the weekly newsletter.  The Challenge and Design Teams will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started. 

Aaaaaand, here's my card. Like last week, these colors said "baby" to me so I gave in and made a baby card :)

The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental About Babies (temporarily out of stock) and was stamped on Sweet Tooth card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I did some stitching and some distressing and pretty much just followed the sketch. For the finishing touch, I added some butterflies cut with my Butterflies Die-namics dies.

Here's the inside, with more of those sweet butterflies and another sentiment from the set.

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 CTD132 so we can see your beauty all in one place. Hope to see you there!
