CTD258- Best Year Ever!!

Happy Wednesday-- time for the next installment of the Color Throwdown!! This week our colors are brought to us by the one and only Lynn Putt!!

I made a kinda' quick card today- just got back from a trip to Indiana and wasn't able to get this card done before I left. I hadn't played with my MFT stamps for a while or made these gorgeous hybrid roses so it was time!! The centers of the roses use kiwi kiss and sage shadow paper and the flourishes are old olive {hard to tell the difference between kiwi kiss and old olive but, they are different!!}

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.

Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits
Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor
Joan Ervin - Stamping With Passion
Lori Tecler - Inking Aloud
Lynn Put - The Queen's Scene 
Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy
 Wanda Cullen - Cullen-ary 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 CTD258.  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.  Can't wait to see what you create!  
Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
