Color Throwdown 381-Friendship and Butterflies

Hello to all of you throwdown fans!  I don't know about you, but I'm ready to think spring!  This fun watering can photo was the perfect photo op to throw down the springtime colors of pink, light green and kraft!

We're using generic colors, so as long as you use the color values shown - Pink, Light Green, Kraft - you'll be good...the color police won't come after you. We want this to be all about having fun!  Feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design, as well. If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD381, and please use #ctd381 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. 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--all of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check 'em out to be sure. 

Soft and pretty was the feeling I was going for with this card. I used the new Concord & 9th dies, Floral & Flutter, that I picked up from Butterfly Reflections. Soooo, so pretty and so many different ways to use them. I kept it simple and cut two of them, one from pink and one from craft. I stamped some of the new leafy images from the Wildflower Stamp set in the background. 

It was so hard to photograph the sentiment. If I were to make this card over, I would probably opt to stamp the words in the Pistachio Pudding ink and the leaf images in the white embossing. But anyway, I do love an embossed sentiment and this one from By Your Side is so pretty. I finished off the card with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins in the challenge colors. 

For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! We can't wait to see what you create with these new colors.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great one!
