Color Throwdown #214


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!   It's my turn to  host the challenge and I have chosen colors that could be used for any season, winter, spring, summer, or fall!!!!  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 cutest fall set from The Cat's Meow called Happy Fall. The scarecrow and sunflowers were all stamped on white card stock and colored with Copics. Then the images were all masked so clouds could be sponged on the background with Bashful Blue. The little bird and sentiment banner were popped up on foam dots and the grass Die-namics and Denim twine from The Twinery finish it off.  

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Forever Friends Challenge - Autumn/Halloween
2. Kaboodles Doodles - pumpkin patch or anything fall
3. There She Goes - Fall/Halloween
4. Challenge up Your Life - Fall/Halloween

Be sure to add CTD214 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
