Color Throwdown #285

This is my last guest post with Color Throwdown! I have enjoyed myself so very much! I do hope they ask me to guest again! Such a fun challenge blog! 

Here is the color scheme for this week.


As soon as I saw the colors for this week, I did the happy dance! I love these colors! I have tons of papers in this color scheme! Woot!


I ended up using Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper (because it was already on my desk). I love the pinks, greens, and browns in the paper. So pretty! I got all the colors in there! I am IN LOVE with the fishtail flags. {sigh swoon} I want to use them every day! 

I added some extra pizzazz with the "fake brads." They are not brads, but are a product called Candi Dots from Craftwork Cards. (You can get yours HERE.) The are made from paper, and you attach them with a foam square or foam dot! Recently, I was discussing with a friend how we had HOARDS of these Candi Dots....so I dragged them out and used them! 


I used a bit of hoarded choco-licious ribbon.  The stamp is a BRAND NEW item to the Gloria Hoard. My friend gave me the set for my birthday! So I made a birthday card. 


The innie stamp is from my hoard.
