Color Throwdown Challenge #328

Hello everyone!! I finally got all the Christmas decorations put away...the tree is down and the living room furniture is all back in place...yay!!!! I don't know why it too me so long to get it done..must be because I have gotten old and lazy!!! 
It's cold here the high 40's and Mackenzie has another soccer game. I can't imagine how those girls can play outside when it's so cold. This grandma sits in the bleachers tucked in a sleeping bag...ok, call me a wimp...LOL!!!! Anyway....

It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Barbara is our hostess and don't you just love the rich, classy colors she picked!! I'm sad to say good-by to our January Guestie, Bonnie Sharp...she is such a fabulous artist!!! However, I'm excited to let you know that our February Guestie is the uber talented Jen Shults of the Deconstructed Sketch fame...Woot!!!!

I went light and airy with the peacock feathers from Taylored Expressions Wispy Wishes set.  They were stamped with Wild Wasabi onto the white background and a little color was added with Copics.

 The sentiment was stamped with Pacific Point and the sequins and Baker's Twine 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 CTD328 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
