Color Throwdown 222

It's my second week as Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge and we were given some great colors to use by team member Broni.  It was good to take a break from making Christmas cards!

I decided to do some fussy cutting and there is a great flower in this MME paper pad.  The flowers were a little on the pale side so I edged them in ink before I curled and layered them.  Doing a shaped card adds so much interest so I picked this big scalloped circle die for my base. 
Finished size is 5 1/4 round.

If you like this week's colors please play along in the challenge with us.  Upload your card here.

We are taking a two week break for the holidays and will be back on January 2.  I will be the Guest Designer for January as well.  See you then!

How beautiful! I love that you didn't use a Christmas or winter image! The darker edging on the flowers is just perfect!
