Color Throwdown Challenge #218


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!   The hostess this week is the lovely Lynn and she has picked some gorgeous colors for us to play with. I sooo love these colors....they will work for any theme or holiday!!!    


I decided to make a Thinking of You card for my sweet friend, Kay, who is going through a tough time right now. I used this weeks i Spy Challenge sketch  and the KK Originals Birch Forest stamp from Rubbernecker. It was colored with Copics and the sentiment stamp is from Rubbernecker's Best Wishes set.  The designer paper on the bottom is from Echo Park's Season's Greetings and the burlap ribbon, seam binding, twine, and button finish it off.

Be sure to add CTD218 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
