CTD261--For You!!

It's my "debut" picking colors "For You" and I chose some bright ones, big surprise!?!


Here's my card...


Playing with some new Waltzingmouse stamps Funky Flowers and a MFT MPD stencil Graduated Dots. First I stamped lines using WPlus9's Country Charm {in a haphazard way} and then laid the graduated dots stencil on top, sponging with pacific point and marina mist. Then I stamped several sizes of the flower and fussy cut out. Added some dimension using foam dots. The leaves were stamped with lucky limeade and pacific point. I used the "backside" of the leaf stamps too. Finally added the sentiment from Waltzingmouse stamps Big Day- Today.

For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented September guestie - Susan Roberts (rainy). Her blog is called Rainy Day Creations.

Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun!  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD261.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  

When you are finished with your creation, head over to the Color Throwdown blog to add your entry to the Inlinkz tool.   

Hope you enjoy the colors and can't wait to see what you create!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
