Color Throwdown #206!


Hello!  It's time for a new Color Throwdown, and this week I am the hostess:)  I just love the picture I chose for this challenge!  Aren't these flowers just gorgeous, and I love the color combination with the turquoise vase!  I decided to finally ink up my The Sweet Life stamp set from PTI along with Mega Gracious Vases, and this is what I came up with:


Very CAS!  I used the coordinating dies, stamped my images, and popped them up over an oval frame that I embossed with the SU Square Lattice Textured Impressions folder.  The sentiment comes from the PTI set Beautiful Butterflies.  

We hope you'll play along with us this week!  Just link your creations to the Color Throwdown Blog HERE, and while you're there make sure you check out the rest of the amazing DT creations!

Well, we had a wonderful vacation last week, and it's back to the real world this week.  I am actually home schooling my daughter this year which was a HUGE decision, but the first couple of days have gone pretty smoothly:)  By next year we hope to be living in a new house in a much better school district!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, and I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

Kerri
