Color Throwdown #111

Happy Day everyone!!!

Gosh it's already Wednesday...and I'm back to work. Mimi is doing much better thanks to the meds!!!
Thank you for all the sweet get well wishes for my little bugger!!! I'm so happy she is feeling better too!!!

I can't hardly believe it, but next week is my last week with Color Throwdown...time surely flies by fast!!!
Today's colors are awesome....are you ready for a challenge ....check them out!!! 


Here is my take on it.... 



I dusted off an older Verve Visual Set called Floral Whimsy. I started out with a River Rock card base. I topped it off with a scored White CS and some Pacific Point DP. My flowers were created with this 3-D Flower Die. The leaves are from a small SU Leave Die. I finished the card off with a large scalloped border, some piercing, the Pacific Point Ribbon, a matching SU Button, some White Scrapper's Floss and the large Halfback Pearls in the center of the flowers.

Make sure to check out the fabulous Color Throwdown Team ~ Barbara, Broni, DanielleKristin, Laura, LeAnne and Tammy !!

Have a wonderful day...I see you soon!!! Hugs ~S~
