Color Throwdown#104

DSCF8687

I’ll tell you what, my CTD teammates really know how to pick some colors!!  Check out this yummy combo from Broni:

This just screams summer to me!!! I wanted to make something fruity with this, but that was a bit too obvious, so I went with some pretty butterflies from SU’s new set Butterfly Prints:

Aren’t those little buttons sweet?  And since I loved this combo so much, I made a second card using Every Little Bit….this idea just popped into my head as I was waking up yesterday morning:

Couldn’t get much simpler!!!  I added a little sparkle to the gumballs, which you can’t see, and added a sentiment from Papertrey!

We would love to have you play along with the Color Throwdown team!  Pop on over to their blog to get all the details and get some mojo going with these colors.  Remember, you just have to use something close if you don’t have the exact colors.  And here are links to all the samples:
