It's Color Throwdown Day!

Helloooooo Everyone!! I'm so excited to be back for this week's edition of the Color Throwdown!! Last week I took a little breakie-break but I'm Baaaaaack!
Here is this week's spectacular palette brought to you by our hostess, Danielle:

These colors instantly said baby card to me. Here's what I did:

Boy, do I love me some kraft paper! I was so excited to see it in the line up this week! I started with a kraft base and stamped it with polka dots in Aqua Mist ink. I added my pea pod focal image on a labels one die cut where I added my Sweet Pea sentiment on kraft paper in chocolate ink. I added a scallop panel: kraft stamped with tea dye polka dots and chocolate polka dots layered on a lite blue panel. Oh yes, forgot to mention that I subbed Soft Sky for Bashful Blue as I don't have any Soft Sky. But that's the beauty of this don't have to use the exact colors to play along and you can use anything that you have that's close. Just be sure to make sure your creation is papercraft related AND be sure to upload it to the Color Throwdown Challenge blog so that everyone can enjoy your creation!
