Color Throwdown #334- Happy!!

Good Morning Color Throwdown fans... time for the next set of fabulous colors!!! Hope you're having a great Wednesday!! Tammy brought us the colors this week, you'll love them!!

I was still in the mood for some flowers... spring is on its' way!! Could be lots of flowers showing up on my blog :)

I played with Verve's Happy Place stamp set for the background, flowers, and sentiment. The flower image was stamped with versamark onto Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock, die cut with Verve's coordinating dies (Happy Doodles) and then watercolored with SU melon mambo and pumpkin pie inks. The Rounded Scallop Verve die was cut with Neenah Solar white- inside panels stamped with versamark and Verve's dots from Bountiful Background- hard to see in the pic. Added the sentiment using Verve's Banner Bundle die set.
