CTD#232 - Sending You Birthday Wishes

 Happy Wednesday everyone!  The new Color Throwdown Challenge for this week starts today with the talented Joan Ervin as our hostess who has chosen some beautiful colors and a fresh looking inspiration photo.  We hope you'll take the time to play along using this week's colors!
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Sending You with the coordinating flower die to create a birthday card.  I started out with a crumb cake card base, then a panel of white cardstock which I randomly stamped the top half with some of the smaller flowers and leaves from the Sending You set.  On top of that I added an embossed piece of barely banana, a scalloped border piece and some ribbon.  Then came my banner, matted square with sentiment and die cut and stamped flower with button and leaves.  These colors were so pretty and cheerful to work with, I can't wait to use them again.
Be sure to visit the other Color Throwdown design team members for more inspiration using this week's color challenge!
