I Know, I Know!

Ok so, Hi! I'm back for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! When I saw the colors for this week a vision popped into my head and for some reason it had very little blue in it and I just went with it. So I definitely took much inspiration from the two greens this week, but totally took it in a different direction. Here's this week's swatch.....

And here's my project......ya, I know! What can I say? But there is a little blue in there! Somehow the greens, black and cork just spoke to me, HA! (and took over)

I finally treated myself to this adorable set called Honey Bear from The Cat's Pajamas. I LOOOOVE it! So I colored the bear, the bee and the honey pot and cut them out and then just started assembling. I knew I wanted to bring in some cork into this project so I used it as my sentiment strip. Oh and how can I forget to mention that I used Feb's Sketch For You To Try.

Would you like to see some inspiring projects that actually use this week's palette? Head on over to the Color Throwdown Blog to check them all out! And don't forget you can always head to the blogs of my fellow design team as well.
