Dear Friend CT100!

This is what I came up with using THE big challenge colours.  
There is quite the party going on over at the CT blog, trust me and go check it out for yourself!  Lots of wonderful prizes, waiting to be won.
Onto my little card...the card base is Baja Breeze and I used this wonderful dp from the Cosmo Cricket Early Bird line as it has BB and Certainly Celery in this cute pattern.  I then created a center panel with BB and gave it a tiny pierced scallop border with an EK border punch.  I stitched that onto the center of the card and added this great SU sentiment and cut out with a Spellbinders Label One die, edged it in BB and popped it onto foam.  I had these great glazed Heidi Grace pieces, a button bird and a cute bird tile sitting on the window ledge that I thought would work quite well with this colour theme, so I cut out two flowers in Certainly Celery with a PTI flower die and edged these in BB.  I added the HG bird to one of the flowers and a button from my stash.  Both of these "buttons" are threaded with a length of narrow pink silk ribbon that I bought at a brand new needlework!
Here is a close up of the bird tile and the red blind pull.  That's all the red I could manage...

I have to tell you, these colours really made me work and think, but I like the way it turned out :)
Thanks for taking a go and check out this wonderful Color Throwdown Bash!

Happy 100th Color Throwdown gals!
