Color Throwdown #490

Hello friends.  This week's challenge at Color Throwdown has the most beautiful Spring like colors and I just couldn't resist playing along with this one!!

Wouldn't you love to have a sip of tea and a cookie or scone at the Peggy Porschen Parlour in London?!  I love all the flowers and the little bicycle outside of this sweet café girly and just sweet, sweet, sweet!  The colors of pink, lavender, green, & gray were just too tempting to not play along this week!

Melissa Phillips had done a series of 3 cards HERE using PTI's DOODLIE-DO stamp set and I had been wanting to CASE her 3rd card where she paper-pieced it...LOVE this technique and it seemed perfect for this color challenge!

I used PTI's DSP Bitty Big paper packs in Sweet Blush, Lilac Grace, & Green Parakeet along with matching inks, and some Smoky Slate ink for my grays.

Lots of layering, fussy cutting, and sponging going on for this card, but I love the Spring like and feminine feel to this delicate card, which is exactly the feeling I got from the inspiration photo!

Still time to play along, so check out the BEAUTIFUL cards from the DT and then try your hand using these lovely colors!  You can check it all out right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
