Celebrate Today - (CTD385)

Hi there, crafty friends!  There's a new Color Throwdown Challenge starting today!
The card I have for today uses the new Papertrey Ink Color Pop stamp set and dies.  I used this week's Retro Sketches Challenge #207 for my layout and I used the colors tropical teal, hawaiian shores, aqua mist, metallic gold (which does not photograph well at all) and a bit of limeade ice for my leaves.  I started out with a stitched die cut tropical teal panel for my background, then added a strip of designer paper from my stash adding a thin strip of gold metallic paper along the edge.  After that I adhered a horizontal strip of hawaiian shores and then adhered a piece of white card stock matted in tropical teal using foam tape.  Then after die cutting and stamping the flowers and leaves from the Color Pop set I arranged and adhered them on my white panel.  Once all of my flowers were in place, I die cut my sentiment from gold metallic paper and one from craft foam and glued them together.  After my sentiment was dry, I added it over top of my flowers and adhered three gold sequins.
For more inspiration, check out the design teams' blog links below OR you can go to the Color Throwdown blog for details on how to play along and you can see all the sample entries in one location.
