Color Throwdown: Just Because

 I love the colors this week at the Color Throwdown. I've been using various combinations of these colors over the summer while creating cheerful cards of encouragement. I haven't added a peachy color so when I saw the color combo, I wanted to give it a try. I like it - the peach softens the look.

I love their graphic too - I want those in my yard!  I wasn't sure what kind of center to add to my die cut flowers. I was looking at the graphic and at the die set and decided to use these itty-bitty flowers to add texture to the center.  I have no idea if that's what they are meant for but I like the result.

I used black in the sentiment and I have a real problem using black just in the sentiment.  Often a black splatter ties it out for me, but I didn't want to mess with the clean design. So I added a strip of paper with diagonal stripes. I'm kind of wishing I had made it a bit thinner, but it is what it is!

Thanks to Color Throwdown for the inspiration!
