You're in my Thoughts Today - (CTD449)

Hello!  Today starts a new Color Throwdown Challenge and we've got some fantastic colors for everyone to create with.
For my card, I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set, Gran's Garden along with the coordinating dies to create a thinking of you card.  I started out with a terra-cotta tile card base, then added a white panel of cardstock. Next I used the PTI woodgrain impressions plate with a piece of kraft cardstock and then die cut a circle to create a window for my sentiment which is from the It's the Thought.  I used some dark brown watercolor paint and added some splatters onto my embossed panel using a paint brush.  After that, I stamped my flowers in canyon clay, terra-cotta tile and chocolate ink and my stems in simply chartreuse and rolled in ripe avocado ink.  After die cutting my flowers and stems, I adhered them onto my card popping up one of the top and bottom flowers with foam tape. As a finishing touch, I added some brown glitter to the stamped centers of my flowers and 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.

OMG! Your card looks like one of those very pricey cards from Papyrus! Your creation is so expertly made (with so many design elements, too!) and it started my day out with a smile from ear-to-ear ^_^ Thank you for sharing your awesome talents with your blog readers!
