Thank You {CTD337}

Hi friends! I'm back with another card for Color Throwdown - woot! This week's color palette is perfectly spring. Love the pop of orange!

Reflections, from Paper Smooches, is one of my favorite flower building sets I have. For this card, I cut out several of the coordinating dies and stamped and layered and stamped some more. Originally, I had placed all the flowers and leaves across the panel, but I thought it needed a little something more, so I added the little blue flower sticking up in the back - kind of like those wild grey hairs I have. Ha!! I also added a white enamel dot on the center flower and balanced the arrangement with some Mango Pearls as well. Fun stuff!

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