Big Dreams {CTD340}

Hello again! I cannot believe it's already the last Wednesday in April and my time as a guest designer for Color Throwdown is over. Sigh. I had a blast working with all of these amazing color palettes!

We have another pretty palette for you all this week - pretty pink petals and gorgeous green leaves!

Ever since the My Favorite Things team debuted Modern Blooms, I've had my eye on it! And then once in the store, I had to buy some new colors of ink and card stock too. That's how I work. Like when you go into Target for, oh, I don't know - gum - and you come out with a new stackable organizational cubical system. You all know what I mean. Anyway... I was itching to ink up my new pretty petals and this challenge fit the bill!

I started off by stamping this big beautiful sentiment from Chalkboard Greetings Too in Black Licorice ink and then added the Cotton Candy flowers in a scattered patter. Then I added the Limelight leaves and adding all the darker accents last. I'm telling you, go grab a flower building set - they are SO easy to work with and look ridiculously gorgeous when you're all finished.

I popped the panel up with foam tape on to a Summer Splash card front and then added a few enamel dots for dimension.

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