Color Throwdown #288 - Happy Birthday

Hi and thanks for stopping by!   I survived my dental work yesterday and am glad to be back among the living.  I spent yesterday popping pain pills and snoozing.  It's my sorry excuse for not having this post up sooner.  I'm the guestie this month at Color Throwdown and am so happy to be playing along.  The colors this week are Gumball Green, Melon Mambo, and Basic Gray.  If you don't have those Stampin Up! colors you can use similar colors.  


I hope you will give the Color Throwdown  challenge a try!   I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with for this color scheme.   If you need a little more inspiration check out the beautiful projects their regular design team came up with. They're amazing!  You can get all the details and link up your project here at Color Throwdown!  Have a beautiful day!
