The Color Throwdown - 5 Year Celebration!

As a past Guest Designer for the Color Throwdown,  I'm excited to be participating in their 5 year celebration today!  Here are the beautiful summery colors for the challenge:
and here is the card I created using similar colors:
My stamps are from Teeny Trees and Country Labels 4 by Waltzingmouse.  I dry embossed a square Nestability on the card base for a frame.  Then I stamped on a white card stock panel that fit inside the frame.  I adhered the panel to the card with foam dots for more dimension.  I could use this card as a get well, birthday, or thinking of you card.

Here is a close up of the embossed frame and layered panel.
Please check out the Color Throwdown blog for a list of all participating alumni and guest designers.  You'll also find a list of all the prizes that are available for you to win if you participate in the challenge as well.  (It’s a long and fabulous list!)  We hope you'll join in on the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Stamps: Waltzingmouse - trees and buds from Teeny Trees, sun wreath and sentiment from Country Labels 4
Paper:  White - PTI
Ink:  Ranger Distress - Salty Ocean, Worn Lipstick, Scattered Straw, Frayed Burlap, Versafine Onyx Black.
Accessories:  Square Nestability, foam dots.
