Color Throwdown 438-Mother's Day Florals

Hello everyone!  Happy Wednesday!  Lynn is our hostess for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!  The colors she chose for our challenge are coral, yellowleaf green and white

Remember, we are using generic colors, so as long as you're close, you're good and as always, feel free to incorporate any other neutrals you need into your design as well.  I hope this spring color palette inspires you to create a card or project and that you love and that you'll have fun playing along with our challenge!

If you upload to a public gallery please use the key words CTD438, and please use #ctd438 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.  

I just LOOOOVE the Blooms 'n Buds stamp set. You can create the prettiest bouquets and backgrounds. I stamped a bunch of flowers and leaves in the challenge colors and then used the Blooms 'n Buds Confetti Cuts to cut them out. I then sponged on some distress inks-scattered straw and ripe persimmon to the background and added the Lacy scallop Circle, making it a frame by running it through with two of the circles together. 

I used the Flowers for Mom Confetti Cut banner to stamp my sentiment from Whole Lotta Happy! I can't wait to give this to my mom. shhhhh, don't tell her. 

Before you head off to create, here’s some inspiration from our talented team to get you started.  I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with these fun colors!
