CTD 195 with Daisies!

The Color Throwdown challenge is pastel colors this week (shown below).  While I'm not a big fan of pastels I managed to make the colors work in this card to my liking.  The pink paper is the only really pale color.  I didn't want to mat everything in black so I just ran a black catseye inkpad around the edges of the papers.  This helps each layer stand out a bit.  I wanted a very small black border for the card base so I made the card 5 3/8 square.

This card was inspired by a card made by Danielle Kennedy shown HERE.
