Colour Throwdown #420

I was swooning when I saw this colour combination - it is sooo pretty!!  Will definitely be using this combination again!

I found an old Sweet Sunday Sketch I liked (actually love Karen's sketches and have a ton saved on Pinterest) and paired it with the perfect piece of designer paper and then went from there.  The sentiment is from Verve's Beautiful Things.  I'm saving this in my stash to give to my daughter when her first set of university finals hit as a little encouragement to her :)

Now for the CTD rules:  Once you've finished your card or other paper crafted project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the Colour Throwdown post.  And, don't forget to use the keyword CTD420 if you upload your project to an online gallery, or hashtag on social media with #ctd420 and/or #colourthrowdown.  Challenge guidelines are in the right sidebar on the Colour Throwdown Challenge Blog in case you have any questions.

This is just absolutely delightful, Marisa! Love the papers and twine, and heart, and butterflies... everything! :)

Such a fabulous sentiment! I love it on all of the rich paper with the pop of tiny blue butterflies and orange heart!

What a gorgeous card, Marisa, and a great layout (yes, I miss Karen's sketches a lot!). Loved having you guest with us this month and hope to see you in the gallery many more times!
