Color Throwdown #248


Hello everyone.....we have had such a wild couple of weeks around here!!! My son, David, was in the hospital with pneumonia and sepsis...he was a real sick puppy!!! We were taking turns staying with him and watching his kiddos so his wife could be with him. He finally went home on antibiotics and went to work today....yeaaaa!!! Anyway....it's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!!  Sweet Broni is the hostess this week and she loves soft beachy colors so I wasn't surprised when I saw her inspiration picture...isn't this beautiful!!!


My card features wood pieces from Kaiser Kraft and the sketch from Mojo Monday #299 Challenge. Canvas was used for the background banner piece and the doily was cut from Jelly Bean Soup's Southern Chickin Dumpling Soup dp.The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Birds of a Feather set and the lace and twine finish. 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD248 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
