Color Throwdown 226

 I am back again as Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown Challenge.  I love this week's colors that were picked by Denise because they lend themselves to nature.  Two shades of purple along with 2 shades of green were perfect for my floral border.  
I did some masking so the flowers and leaves could be close or overlapping.  The swirly frame behind the image is a square frame that I cut into 4 pieces so it would be the right size to frame my work. 
Finished size is 5 1/2 square.

Check out the CTD blog to play along and see what the Design Team created this week.
