Color Throwdown Challenge #430

Are you ready for this week's colors for Color Throwdown Challenge #430?

I love the earthy tones--turquoise, sage green, gold, and dark brown.
Here's what I came up with.

I gold embossed a floral background on watercolor card stock, then die cut
the teapot and teacup. Green, turquoise and brown Distress inks were
sponged on the pieces.

It's hard to see in the photo, but I embossed a flourish die on the card base to
resemble steam. The sentiment was gold embossed, and I adhered the frame,
the two images, and finished off the card with some enamel dots.

Stop by the Color Throwdown blog for all the details and join the challenge!
And for more inspiration, be sure to visit the design team to see their projects.
