Color Throwdown #239



Hello everyone.... It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!! 
The wonderful Barbara is our hostess the week and she has picked some soft and pretty colors for us to play with!!!  I actually felt good enough to play in the craft room on Sunday...I'm slowly but surly getting back to normal!!! I have graduated to a cane but I still need the pain meds and I have to ice my knee several times a day. The physical therapist will continue to come to my home through next week so hopefully, she can work a little magic in the next couple of weeks!!! Anyway.....let me tell you about my card. 






Papers from Echo Park's Victorian Garden and Boy Crazy by My Mind's Eye were used and sewing was done around the edges.  The sketch is last week's Mojo Monday sketch and the sentiment is from Verve's Heart to Heart set. The pearls, May Art's wood birdcage, the Stampin Up! bird die, Twine, and the Martha Stewart fern punched leaves finish it off.


Be sure to add CTD239 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
