You Were Missed {CTD336}

Hello there! I'm so excited to be guest designing in April for Color Throwdown!! Here's a look at this week's color palette - so warm and welcoming, right? Love them! Makes me ready for summer -

I rummaged through my paper packs and found the perfect colors and patterns from Simple Stories' 24/7 6x6 pack. I used one of the dies from the Happy Hellos Die-namics set in Smooth White card stock and then heat embossed the sentiment from The Welcome Wagon by Paper Smooches. I had to hunt around my craft space for something light green and found some Lucky Blend sequins from Avery Elle - those did the trick!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Color Throwdown team created for you today:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
