Color Throwdown #303- Sending Sunshine!!

Welcome to Color Throwdown #303. Broni picked the colors and inspiration pic this week... aren't they lovely colors and those popsicles look delish!!

Me- So Happy to be back stampin' and feeling well! Went on a vacation to the beach (wonderful) and got sick with a nasty bug that left me feeling bad for over a week!


 
I played with the new to me PTI Doodlie Do set... in love. The leaf outline was stamped with garden green and "haphazardly or half colored" with copics to match the lucky limeade and cool caribbean. Both the flowers and leaves were fussy cut and popped up for a little dimension. The pic doesn't show clearly but, the bottom poppy parade cardstock was embossed with PTI's linen impression plate.
 
The layout was inspired by Seize the Sketch.
 

Our July Guest Designer is Diane Jaquay from Peaceful Lane.

This week's Guest Star Stamper is Sarah Stone.
