Color Throwdown Challenge #211


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!   The wonderful Wanda is our hostess and she has picked a gorgeous color combo for us this week!!!! Aren't these colors perfect for a fall card???  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 the Stamp Oasis leaf stamps from Rubbernecker....the solid stamp was colored with Spiced Marmalade and Crushed Olive Distress inks and Pumpkin Pie and Summer Starfruit Stampin Up! inks. The sentiment was created with the Rubbernecker  word set and I used the iSpy sketch #34. The button and twine finish it off.


Be sure to add CTD211 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Gorgeous tribute to fall. I always love looking at your beautiful creations. I don't get to just sit down and do it very often (check out my favorite blogs) but when I do, I notice I am always on yours the longest :-) Thanks for the inspiration Joan!
