Color Throwdow 385-beautiful day

Hi everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  Jodi is our hostess this week with a brand new color combination that I just love!

Remember, we are using generic colors, so as long as you using the color values shown, teal, aqua and gold, you are good to go!  The color police won't come after you! Just have fun!  Please feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need in your design.  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD385, and please use #ctd384 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 them out to be sure!  For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get play along with us!  We cannot wait to see what you come up with this week!

I used the gorgeous Rose Garden stamps from Reverse Confetti. I started with an aqua water colored background and then used some gold ink to add in the outline of the roses. This was such a hard card to photograph and the photos just don't do it justice. 

I then used one of the solid rose images and inked it up with some Summer Splash ink and then tucked in some of the leaf images from the same set. I used the Rose Garden Confetti Cuts to cut them out.  I inked up the sentiment in gold ink onto a Tropical Teal strip of card stock. I then tucked in the small scalloped edge from the Double Scallop Border also in gold. I finished off the card with a scattering of sequins. 

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.
