CTD195/rs14 - Four of a Kind Birthday

Hello there friends!  It's time for the Color Throwdown and our hostess for this week is the talented Broni who has chosen some lovely pastel colors along with a pretty inspiration photo.

For my card I used the Retro Sketches Challenge #14 for my layout and the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Four of a Kind and Beautiful Butterflies for my sentiment.  I really liked the poppy flowers in vases from the inspiration photo and thought that the flowers from the Four of a Kind stamp set would give me the look I wanted.  There are so many great ideas you could pull from the inspiration photo, everything from the teacup, flowers, vases and jars.  It's difficult to see from the photos, but I added a touch of glitter to the blush blossom stamped dots that are stamped throughout the flowers.
Supplies: Four of a Kind, Beautiful Butterflies, Filigree border die, Butterfly die, Ribbon, Button, Polka Dot embossing folder, Glitter, Corner Rounder.  Colors: Barley Banana, Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Blush Blossom.
