Color Throwdown 409-Birthday Blooms

Good Morning and Welcome to this week's Color Throwdown challenge. Vickie is our hostess this week and she chose gorgeous colors. 

A BIG Welcome to Karren Johnson our September Guest Designer!! You can find the link to her blog below. 

As a reminder- we're using generic colors- just use the colors shown and you'll be good!! And- neutrals are free!! Just enjoy and have fun! Can't wait to see what you create!

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD409, and please use#ctd409 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.

For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and go get inky! 

Here is my card with the colors. I was dying to use the beautiful new Blooms 'n Buds releasing tomorrow from Reverse Confetti. I stamped the blooms in the gorgeous new Iced Aqua Premium Dye ink onto Cloud White Cardstock and then added some accents with Black Licorice ink. The card base is a top folding A2 card with Iced Aqua cardstock

 I tucked in some yellow leaves. I mounted my bouquet onto a Lacey Scallop Confetti Cut and embossed a birthday sentiment from the Celebrations stamp set along the bottom. I tied on some pretty Charcoal twine in the upper corner of the main image panel. Here is a close up of the flowers. 

For more inspiration, check out the other design team members' creations below, and get inky! And don't forget to join us over on the CTD Blog. We can't wait to see what you create with these new colors.
