Color Throwdown Challenge #197


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! It's my turn to host the challenge this week and I have picked some warm, rich colors for you to play with!! They look kinda fallish but I think they will make beautiful summer cards, too!!!! 


My card features one of my favorite Rubbernecker sentiments called Go Confidently #582-12.....it was cutout with a My Favorite Things Die-namics die, trimmed  and sewn along the edge, and popped up with foam dots.  The rolled felt flowers and leaves also cut with Die-manics dies were added and the punched butterfly is the finishing touch.
Recipe:
Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: Kraft, Cajan craze, Basic Grey's Konnichiwa dp 
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Felt, Pearls, Sewing Machine, Die-namics dies, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch



Be sure to add CTD197 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
