Color Throwdown Challenge #222


Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! The fabulous Broni is the hostess this week and she has picked some awesome colors...isn't the inspiration picture gorgeous!!!! Since my DGS Cole is having a birthday the day after Christmas, I thought this weeks colors colors would be perfect for his card!!! This is the last challenge this year...the team will take off the next two weeks so we can get ready for the holidays....we will be back January 2, 2013. 



My card features the owl punch from Stampin Up!...googly eyes were added along with a Memory Box branch die cut and the beautiful designer paper from The Little Yellow Bicycle called Twig. The sun was hand cut along with the sentiment bubble. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the sewing around the edges is the finishing touch.


Be sure to add CTD222 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
