Color Throwdown #442

Good Morning- Happy, Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another set of colors at the Color Throwdown!! This week the colors were chosen by our boss- Barbara. I say our "boss" but, we all know they come in different flavors!! Hers is the Italian ice yummy kind of boss :-)  That sounds a little creepy but, Bar goes on these fabulous trips and this is one of her fav deserts! Barbara is the glue for this challenge- she works so hard behind the scenes to keep everything running- from posting to several different social media sites to reminding us of what we need to work on (guests, colors etc.). This post is for her to say "A Million Thanks" for everything thing you do- Love ya!!

She picked some fabulous neutral colors!!

So, since it was in honor of Bar- I had to pull out MFT stamps and dies (her second love-or should I say third- we have to think of hubs and the kitties you know!!)

The background was created with MFT's Stitched Dome Stax and Stitched Dome Stax frames. I popped up a frame inside a larger dome for a different layout. Next I die cut several leaves and flowers from MFT's Pretty Posies and stamped using the Pretty Posies stamps. The sentiment is from MFT's Essential Sentiments. 

Again.... A MILLION THANKS for all you do for us!!

Some inspiration...
