Color Throwdown #209


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!   The lovely Lynn is our hostess and she has picked some beautiful fall colors for us this week!!!! Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors...use what you have that comes close...we want everyone to have a chance to play!!! 


My card features two Verve stamp sets and the Mojo Monday #258 Sketch. The bird and branch from the Anniversary Birds set was paper pieced with papers from Simple Stories dp called Harverst Lane. This dp was also used for the background and the flower was stamped and paper pieced with the small flower from the Great Friend set and paper from American Crafts Shoreline dp. The sentiment is from the Anniversary Birds set and the sewing, distressing, Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler seam binding, a Spellbinder's leaf die, button and twine finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges"
1. Crafty Cardmakers - winged things
2. Created With Love Challenge - birthday
3. Cupcake Craft Challenge - in stitches
4. Lexi's Creations - Autumn colors
