Hi everyone--this greeting comes from the sunny shores of Delaware, where I am on vacation! This week the Color Throwdown hostess is Cathy, and she has chosen Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Positively Pink as her colors! I substituted Pixie Pink and you should feel free to do that also, if you don't have these exact colors! We want everyone to play!
This week our sponsor is My Creative Classroom--you need to hop over to the ColorThrowdown blog to see what they're all about! They were new to me, and wow, what a lot of stuff they have to offer! Once you create your card, post it on your blog or an online gallery (use CTD57 as your keyword), then post it to Mr Linky! You might get chosen to be a Featured Stamper or even a Guest Designer for October!

I am so struggling with my photography; even this card, taken outside, was troublesome! Anyway, the base is Bashful Blue with some retired DP on top, then Cert Celery and a Swiss Dotted white panel. The flower, cut from my Blossom Nesties, was stamped with different polka dots from the PTI Polka Dot Basics set; the leaves are stamped in Background Basics: Text Style, trimmed, folded, then run through my crimper. The sentiment is from Vintage Picnic Basket, stamped on a Ribbon Tags Trio diecut. Ribbon was from my stash; the center of the flower is from SU's Circle Circus with some generic bling added! Now let's see what the other CTD designers did this week:
