Color Throwdown #490


Pretty in pink and covered in flowers, Peggy Porschen Parlour may well be the cutest cafĂ© in London. Opened in 2011, the Peggy Porschen Parlour serves a large variety of cakes, cookies, and teas.  Though I've never visited, I fell in love with their beautiful entrance as I was browsing online for color inspiration photos.  I hope you'll enjoy this week's pastel palette of pink, lavender, green and light gray!


If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word CTD490, and please use #ctd490 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of this post, please use a direct link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog. All of the "rules" are in the right sidebar, so check them out to be sure. And, no digital designs - only digital images that are printed off and colored will be allowed. Totally digital designs will be removed from the link up.
