Color Throwdown Challenge #262

Hello Everyone!! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!!!  Wanda is our hostess this week and she has picked some beautiful Fall colors for us to play with!!! 

First I want to thank Susan Roberts for being the September Guest Designer...all her cards were absolutely fabulous!!!  We have a new Guestie for October...the wonderful and Ooooh so talented Sankari Wegman....Welcome to the Color Throwdown!!!!

My card features the Mum's the Word set from Papertrey Ink. The mums were stamped with Riding Hood Red, More Mustard, Summer Starfruit (I don't have Crushed Curry),  Smoky Slate, and the leaves were stamped with Wild Wasabi (I couldn't find my Garden Green!!) onto white card stock and cutout with the coordinating dies. They were all popped up with foam tape. The  frame image from Papertrey Ink's Boutique Borders: Christmas was stamped on the white card stock base and the sentiment is from Flourishes Peaches and Cherries set. The seam binding finishes it off. 

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 CTD262 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!!
