All the Days of My Life - Color Throwdown

ctd 251 verve diva dare

It's time for another fabulous Color Throwdown challenge, CTD #251!  That adorable fushia teapot jumped out at me and I had to add a splash of pink!

Thanks to all of you who participated in last week's 5-year celebration of the Color Throwdown!  There were so many gorgeous submissions to the challenge:)


I had to flash some VERVE as I worked with the Viva la Verve Sketch Challenge for July Week 2 and the July Diva Dare Challenge:  Tattered Pages.  I think my big flower and leaves works for the Nature Walk Challenge over at Paper Issues, too!


I added some white heat embossing on the flowers, leaves and sentiment to make them pop from the colored patterns!  There is a touch of distressing around the aqua panel, some ribbon, twine, buttons...all things lovely for these wonderful challenges!

Love that you incorporated the pink flowers from the pic. You can barely see them there but of course your lovely eye picked up on them!
