When You're Not Here - (CTD416)

Hi there!  I'm late with my Color Throwdown Challenge post for today but better late than never.  Since I was late, I was able to use this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge to go along with the pretty color combination we have over at the Color Throwdown.
For my card I used the My Favorite Things stamp sets Pretty Posies with the Pretty Posies Die-namics and I Knead You with the I Knead You Die-namics.  Looking at the CTD inspiration photo I wanted to use a floral set but also wanted something cute thrown in.  I used a strip of polka dotted coral colored paper from the MFT Dots & Stripes Sorbet paper pack then added an embossed piece of kraft cardstock.  Next I stamped, colored (with Copic markers) and die cut my floral images and cat along with the Single Stitched Oval Die-namics Frame.  For the inside of the frame, I blended on some melon berry ink and used the same ink for two of my flowers along with some tropical teal and rich razzelberry.  After that I stamped my sentiment on a banner and adhered all my pieces down onto my card, popping up the largest coral flower with foam tape and gluing on some teal 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.
