Color Throwdown # 345- Celebrate!!

Happy Hump day!! That means it's time for another Color Throwdown challenge. Wanda picked the colors this week!!

Isn't that a fantastic planter and the begonias.... love!!

I decided to play with a Reverse Confetti quick cut panel and some WPlus9. The sentiment is from Strictly Sentiments 5 and the stamps/dies are Prettie Peonies. I stamped the outline with versamark onto watercolor cardstock and heat embossed with white. Next, I used SU Real Red to color the flowers- I know they look a little pinkish here but, I did use red :)

Once you’ve finished your card or other paper-crafted project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD345 if you upload your project to an online gallery, or hashtag on social media with #ctd345 and/or #colorthrowdown.  Challenge guidelines are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.

I'm happy to announce that the talented Nancy Thomas from Creative Palette is our guest designer for the month of June!  Welcome Nancy!
