Color Throwdown Challenge #26

CTD26 banner

Another week, another wonderful selection of fabulous cards all you stampers have been submitting!  It is such fun to see how creative you all are!  This week, Broni has chosen a fun trio of colors:

CTD26 swatch

Just looking at the swatch Kisa did for us makes me want to smile!!!  Maybe somebody will take those little snails and make a card with them (hint,hint!).  I had a piece of Basic Black cardstock from another project that had already been run through my Swiss Dots CB folder, so I used that as my starting point for my little 4 1/4" square card:

Although it is hard to see, the little dots are there!  I used a nice outline daisy from Gina K's Flowers for Daisy set, stamped in Stazon on Shimmery White cardstock and watercolored with my aquapainters.  The base has been stamped with Tres Chic and the Pink Passion panel stamped with the lovely Floral, now sadly retired.  I added some ribbon & button trim--from this angle, the button seems to overpower the card, but how about here:

Anyway, let's see what you can come up with this week!  If you have a blog, you can link your project in the comments screen on the CTD blog, or if you want to post it on an online gallery like Splitcoast or Paper Planet, use the keyword CTD26.  Just be sure to let us know that you've participated!  Now let's see what the other CTD girls have come up with:
