Thanks for stopping by for Color Throwdown 276! This week is Barbara's turn to host the challenge and here is the pretty, warm color combination she chose for us to work with this week. 

Be sure to stop by the Color Throwdown blog for all the details on how you could be next week's Guest Designer. 

I like mixing up page sizes in my photo albums so today I have a 8 x 8 scrapbook page to share. 

I started with a piece of patterned paper with a very soft background pattern and added additional pattern with the Delicate Doily Stencil and Steel Grey Ink

The "sweet" sentiment is from the Chocolate Sentiments Stamp Set and cut out with one of the dies in the Mini Tabs Foursome Die-namics. The Memories sentiment is cut out with the Accent It - Story Titles Die-namics. 

I added the corners on the photo with corrugated paper cut with the Photo Corners Die-namics. 

These pretty flowers are created with the Layered Rose Die-namics. The tiny white flowers are from my stash.
