Hello - (CTD404)

Hello!  It's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!
Before I get to my card I'd like to welcome this month's Color Throwdown Guest Designer, Wanda Guess.
For my card I went with a clean and simple look and kept the focus on my main image.  I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Spring Woods & Winter Woods for my sentiment.  For some reason the colors in these pictures look more blue instead of aqua/teal but I used craft, hawaiian shores, tropical teal, chocolate chip, simply chartreuse and tumbled glass ink.  I die cut a circle from a white cardstock panel, then sponged tumbled glass distress ink onto my card front and adhered the die cut panel using foam tape over top of the sponged background.  To add some interest to the die cut circle in the front of my card, I die cut a frame and adhered it to my card front then added the bird and branch with foam tape.
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.
