ColorThrowdown 443-enjoy your day

Hey, y'all! Broni is taking her turn to host the Color Throwdown! Love the colors she picked this week. 

It’s finally feeling like summer so let's celebrate with some bright, fun colors: Turquoise, Lime Green, Yellow and White.

Remember these are generic colors and you can add other neutrals if you wish.  If you upload to a social site, please use keywords like: #ctd, #CTD443, and #colorthrowdown.  And please, no digital cards.  But you can use digital images printed and incorporated into cards.  Also, please be sure to use a specific blog post link when you link up below, and not a generic link to your blog.  (All of the challenge rules are in the right column.)

I pulled together some of old and new Reverse Confetti for today's card. That gator from Later Gator is one of my all time faves and it was a great way to pull in the green from the challenge. I added him to the Sunburst Tag Layer cut from Bumblebee card stock. I love that bright yellow! I stamped the Simply Sentiments in Midnight ink to the center of the tag. 

The fun stripes in the background are from the new Vertical Stripes Cover Panel. When used on a landscape card the stripes become horizontal. Yep, super cool. I tied on a pretty striped twine bow. 

Now check out what the design team members have posted below for your inspiration.  We can’t wait to see what you create!
