Lily Pad Cards Very First Challenge: a Color Throw Down

Here are the scrumptious colors that Kathy has chosen for her very first Color Throw Down at Lily Pad Cards!  They make me think of the Florida Gulf Coast, with lemon, lime, and orange trees and the turquoise and blue waters there......

I made 2 cards with these colors:

supplies: Hero Arts PS605 Cerulean Layering Paper as cardbase, Sizzix embossing folder, (small flowers), scraps of lime, royal blue, orange and lemon papers, Hero Arts CL495 Blossom Art, CL374 Big and Small Flowers (stems and leaves), CL434 Just Find Me

supplies: Hero Arts PS605 Cerulean Layering Paper (card base), white, dark blue, lemon, lime and orange scraps of papers, Hero Arts CG176 Butterfly Field, broken china distress ink, E5386 Traditional Butterfly, versafine onyx black ink, CL267 Card Messages, versmark ink and white embossing powder

I hope these give you some inspiration for the challenge this week!  You can win a gorgeous set of Letraset Pro Markers!  For more ideas, please visit my Lily Pad Cards teamies:
