Color Throwdown Wednesday!

Hey there!!! I'm here to share a project I made for today's Color Throwdown Challenge #165. I'm the hostess this week and we have a very pretty palette of colors for you to play with. Check it out....

And this is what I made...

I started by making three flowers using the new Fringe Flower Die from Lil' Inker Designs.

And I used papers from the 5 and Dime collection from October Afternoon which I thought worked perfectly, added in some stitching and other embellies and called it done!

Head on over to the Color Throwdown Blog to see all the deets on participating and make sure you stop by and visit the blogs of our designers. They've got some amazing creations for you as always!!
