Color Throwdown 436-Mother's Day Cake

Hello CTD friends! It's Lisa Henke here with this week's challenge colors. I am just drooling over these pretty Spring dessert cups. I hope you'll dig in and play along with us. The colors this week are Light yellow, blue, and green.We are using generic colors, so grab what you have that fits the challenge and have fun creating. As always, 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 CTD436, and please use #ctd436 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 please check them if you are in doubt.  One last detail to remember, no digital designs.  Only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed.  Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.

I saw those dessert cups and right away thought about this pretty cake set from Reverse Confetti. It's called Candles 'n Confetti. All the bits are separate, so you can customize your cake to fit any occasion. I then used the matching Candles 'n Confetti Confetti Cuts

In the background I used Cloud White card stock and the Large Eyelet Cover Panel. This is one of my faves. The sentiment was created with the Happy Pretty Panel and Whole Lotta Happy stamp set. Here is a close up.
