Color Throwdown 280- Thinking of You!!

Happy Wednesday!! Haven't posted for a while and then, two posts in one day!! Well, at least I had a chance to get a little inky- lately it's been sparse!!

This week the colors are brought to us by Melody.... LOVE them {but, then I always do!}

I swear every time these girls pick an inspiration pic... I want to redecorate!!

I stamped an image from MPD designs for MFT- Distressed Background Blocks onto a piece of paper from Basic Grey Fresh Cut {it has a subtle watercolor effect but, not sure the pic shows it}, added a stitched circle from Lil Inker designs. Finished with flowers made with MFT die-namics Prima Donna Petals- leaves using Simon Says Stamp Leaf Column outline, and sentiment from MFT LJD Peaceful Wildflowers.
The layout is this week's Cardabilities sketch.

For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs.

And another big welcome to our Guest Star Stamper this week.... Allyson Andersen

Glad to have you both playing with us!!
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 CTD280.  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. 

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