Color Throwdown #101

Hi! I am so honored to be kicking off the next 100 challenges as your hostess this week at the Color Throwdown!!! Let's get right down to business shall we? Here are your colors for this week:
Several weeks ago, was searching for inspiring colors for today's challenge. That's when I stumbled upon THIS card from Amy Sheffer. I was reminded of how I loved using this combo in the past and decided to dust off my Urban Oasis paper from Stampin' Up!

Here are a couple of cards I have for you today:

This card is fresh and new for you today. I wanted to something clean and graphic with these colors and I've had this brad lying around that I've been dying to use. I think it works well here.
My second card today is actually a CASE of my own work from a while ago, but today I added in some stitching, shading on my flowers with a T1 Copic as well as some sparkle from my crystal Spica gel pen.

So make sure to head on over to the Color Throwdown blog today to check out all the details on how you can play along and to upload your creations using the InLinkz tool! And while you're there BE SURE to check out the amazing designs of my fellow design team members as they will definitely get your mojo going!
