Color Throwdown Challenge #230



Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge! The fabulous Barbara is our hostess this week and she has picked some beautiful, earthy colors for us to play with!!!! 


My card features The Flower Garden set and the Friend of Mine set both from The Craft's Meow. I also used the February sketch challenge on the Craft's Meow blog as my layout.  The flowers were stamped with Marina Mist onto white card stock, the sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chop onto Cajun Craze, the background banner papers were from Basic Grey's Pyrus dp and the twine finishes it off. 
 
Be sure to add CTD230 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
