Color Throwdown Challenge #186

Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! The dynamic Danielle is our hostess this week and she has picked some beautiful colors that look so warm and homey....I just had to go shabby/vintage with them!!!! 

My card features the Beautiful Wishes sentiment from Rubbernecker was distressed along the edges as was the background which was stamped with Rubbernecker's French Script background stamp. I also added a layer of My Minds Eye Stella Rose dp, a Cherry Lynn vine diecut, a KaiserCraft wooden birdcage, buttons, lace, seam binding, and flowers. This was fun to make because I just kept adding and adding....LOL!!!

This is also for a couple of new challenges....the first one is called  Crafty Friends Challenge to make something vintage and the Oozak Challenge which is anything goes.

This is also for Bunny Zoe's Challenge to make something shabby chic/vintage and the
Stamps & Fun = Creativity  bingo challenge...I went diagonal with flowers, lace, and sentiment.

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors to play along...use what you have that is similar to the challenge colors. Be sure to add CTD186 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
