A Milestone Challenge

The designers over at The Color Throwdown have cooked up a wonderful challenge this week, to celebrate their 100th anniversary. The prizes to be won are amazing, and the sponsors that are helping them celebrate are abundant! You must go check it out! Here are the colors that we were asked to use.

Easy peasy, right? If you don't have the exact colors, they ask you to get close, and please use a direct link. I created the background by loading the ink and spritzing to make a tye dyed effect. Sorry is my flower is showing purpleish, but it was inked in Baja Breeze.Supplies:
Inks: Stampin Up!
Papers: Basic Grey, GKD Pure Luxury, Glossy
Stamps: chair- Third Coast Stamps, Lace Doily and sentiment- Nina Brackett for Gina K.
Embellishments: Making Memories

Thanks for taking a peek!
