Color Throwdown Challenge #288



Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!!! Melody is our hostess and she has picked such pretty colors...lots of possibilities with this combo!!!


I dug through a bunch of seldom used stamp sets and picked out three for this card. The A Muse set called Seasonal Branch was used for the branch which was stamped with basic gray, the leaves were stamped with gumball green, and the flowers were stamped with melon mambo.  The little owl from the Stampin Up! set called Aviary was stamped with melon mambo, and the sentiment is from PTI's Birthday basics set. The pearls and ribbon finish it off.  Pretty simple but a a perfect birthday card for mailing!! 

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 CTD288 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You can find out all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
