Color Throwdown #297

Hello everyone....hope all is well with you!! We have been crazy around here...lots of Grands in and out since school got out. We have also been canning green beans...I had one little mishap (I didn't have the rings on tight enough and all the water from the jars came out in the canner....I thought the thing was going to explode!!! Of course, hubs was out of town fishing..wouldn't you know!!!) Anyway....after I cleaned up the mess and recanned the beans, all was ok!! 

Cindy is the hostess this week for our Color Throwdown Challenge and she has picked a beautiful combo....not sure I would have ever put these colors together but I will be using it it!!!

My card features some new goodies I got in the mail over the weekend. The flowers are from the WPlus9 set called Spring Blooms and the bird is from their Love Birds set. 

The sentiment is from Verve's Swan Song set and the sequins finish 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 CTD297 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.

What a gorgeous card, Joan! Love those big blooms and the bird too! These were perfect with the colors! Hey and I know what you mean about the green beans! I have my fair share of canning stories as well!!

Wanda Cullen said...

LOVE this gorgeous combination of 3 different stamp sets! Canning is such hard work, but isn't it great when winter rolls around and you have all these "fresh" foods at your fingertips?!

Wonderful Joan!! Love those flowers and bird. Glad you "saved" the beans...we're hoping for a decent crop this year...small crop...last year we had so much rain not a lot made it...just the hardy stuff!
