It's Wednesday! Time for the Color Throwdown!

This week, LeAnne is our hostess! She chose these fine colors for us today:

Here's what I've done with them....

I finally got my hands on the Baby Button Bits set from Papertrey Ink and I paired it with the piece of decorative paper from Basic Grey that I thought would complement this palette nicely!

Do you ever wish you had a "do over"? If I did this week, I would change my sentiment to something different as I don't feel like I'm loving the baby sentiment on this particular card now that I'm looking at it photographed and on my blog.

I drew inspiration from a SFYTT from Jen del Muro and as I didn't have Wild Wasabi, I used a similar green from PTI...New Leaf? LeAnne was thoughtful enough to put some Marina Mist carstock in the mail to each of us DT members just so we had it in time for this challenge. Wasn't that nice?

Please be sure to visit the Color Throwdown blog to upload your challenge cards. Remember, these colors are for inspiration only. Use the colors that you have that are the same or close and come play along!! And don't forget to visit the blogs of the design team for some truly fantastic work this week.
