Morning Meadow, CTD288 & TC4

Hiya, Stampers! I am super excited to be a featured stamper this week at the Color Throwdown challenge! They have some amazing artists on their team and I'm honored to be in their midst! 

This week the colors are Gumball Green, Melon Mambo and Basic Gray. What a gorgeous outdoor living space in the inspiration photo, too! 

The colors inspired me to do a floral image and I reached for my much loved Morning Meadow stamp set once again. I must admit it was a little challenging to work the gray into my project, but I think it works well for the sentiment and banners. 

For my layout, I chose the sketch at The Challenge and rotated it 90 degrees. 

Nothing complicated here. I used the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder to emboss the background, and markers to color the floral stamp. The little Banner Punch was from the now over Sale-A-Bration promotion, but I do hope it makes it's way into the new catalog!
