CTD189 - Sending You

Today's Wednesday and time for the Color Throwdown Challenge.
Kristin is our hostess this week and she's chosen some bold colors for us to create with.
For some reason as much as I really like this color combo I was struggling to create a card using it.  I searched my whole stash of designer papers looking for a print with at least three of the colors in it and finally settled on the one you see here.  I'm not sure whether I'm loving it or not, but it is what it is.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Sending You along with a PTI flower die.
Supplies: Sending You, Sending You dies, Beautiful Blooms flower die, This & That Echo Park designer paper, TE scallop border die, Ribbon, Button.
