Color Throwdown: Hey Bouquet

I love the bright and cheerful colors at the Color Throwdown plus the graphic looks amazing - I want those fruit-filled popsicles!! I didn't use popsicles on my card probably because it was a very stormy and windy day yesterday when I was crafting - not a popsicle kind of day - more a day of crossed fingers that my big trees didn't topple onto my house. So I pulled out a cheerful bouquet but I wasn't in the mood for coloring; I wanted quick and easy!

CTD596 Hey

I realized that I had a number of those letters cut in the appropriate colors for the challenge. When I made the letters for this card and already had embossing powder everywhere, I just kept embossing and did a rainbow of pre-made letters. They are coming in handy. Since they are a Stamp Market product, I pulled out their bouquet and the sentiment. Then a few glitter sprinkles and this card was done in minutes!  

BTW - I was lucky - no trees on my house. But not all of my friends and neighbors were so lucky. One friend caught a video of his sons frantically moving cars while the big tree in their front yard slowly toppled all the way across the road. It's a great family - they did it all with a sense of humor!

Thanks to the group at The Color Throwdown for this summery inspiration on my dark and stormy day.
