CTD #285

Happy Wednesday and as always, WELCOME to the Color Throwdown!! We've been enjoying all of the gorgeous cards!!

This week Broni  brought us these gorgeous colors....

Here's my card....

Definitely time for some spring time blossoms!! Pretty straightforward card but, I did use some NBUS (never been used stamps/dies too-as Darnell would say) that I have had forever. Can't give you a good reason as these Stampin Up images are gorgeous and the framelits dies are perfect!! Colored the flowers with copics and embossed the blushing bride layer with a Quikutz dots folder and distressed the edges of the sahara sand panel.

The layout is this week's CAS(E) this sketch...

Pretty Watercoloring, Vicky. And your BIG pink polka dots are so cute.

So soft and pretty! It's a welcome breath of spring (seeing as how I'm still looking at that white stuff outside and woke up to 28 degrees)!
