Color Throwdown # 630/ Hello Friend

Hello and welcome back everyone!  Wanda is our hostess for this week's Color Throwdown challenge with some light pastel colors - blush, sage green and gold - inspired by this gorgeous cake! 

If you upload your creation to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD630, and please use #ctd630 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of this post, please use a direct link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog. All the rules are in the right sidebar, so check them out if you're unsure. No digital designs will be allowed - only digital images that are printed off and colored.

I pulled out one of my all time favorite RC floral sets, Peony. I did a quick watercolor wash in the soft pretty colors. To add the gold, I used some embossing powder for my images and used the coordinating Peony Confetti Cuts to cut out all the pieces. 

I added a sentiment from the Mixed Messages. I added some light splattering to the background and then used the foam dimensionals to pop up the Peony images. 

For more amazing projects with this week's colors, check out what my teamies created with these colors. 

We can't wait to see what you come up with this week.
