Enjoy Your Day - CTD # 155

It’s Color Throwdown time! Today’s colors were chosen by the dazzling Danielle and I’m likin’ ‘em. Here they are:

Aren’t they purty??? They say ‘flowers’ to me so that’s what I did. I’m using this MFT sketch that has become one of my absolute favorites. The sentiment is from More Essential Sentiments and was stamped on a flag cut using the First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics die set.

And, of course, I used my fave flower dies, Pretty Posies Die-namics and the leaves were cut with the Upsy Daisy Die-namics set. Some bling, some twine-tied buttons, and some stitching finish it off.

Here's the inside with another sentiment from the set.

Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. 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 CTD155 so we can see your beauty all in one place.
