Hello {CTD338}

Hello there, crafty friends! I'm back with a card for this week's Color Throwdown. This week the team has this beautiful color palette for you:

Doesn't it just scream spring? I have forgotten how much I love using kraft card stock. It's such a delicious neutral and now I'm needing to use it again. Lots.

I went all kinds of flower crazy today - I used Flower Medley Die-namics from MFT in Blu Raspberry and Summer Splash card stock. I added the Leaf-Filled Flourish and some Layered Leaves in Jellybean Green card stock underneath. I really love this leafy vine combo! The sentiment is one of the Happy Hellos Die-namics in Smooth White. I used the negative of the die cut to help me place the letters nice and neat. I also added a few white enamel dots to the flowers to help balance out the white.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Color Throwdown team created for you today:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
