Color Throwdown #210

Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!   The Terrific Tammy is our hostess and she has picked an awesome color combo for us this week!!!! Since I have a Grandson with a birthday coming up, I thought these colors would be perfect for a masculine card!! Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors...use what you have that comes close...we want everyone to have a chance to play!!! 

My card features papers from Glitz Happy Trails and Basic Grey's Origins. I used  Mojo Monday's Sketch #259 and stamps from Rubbernecker. The Mustang Fastback was stamped on vanilla cardstock and popped up on foam dots. The sentiment was stamped on the Glitz map paper and the twine and button finish it off. 

Be sure to add CTD210 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!

Fabulous guy card, Joan! I love your mustang image! This would be so perfect for my son...he absolutely loves mustangs...especially this model. You never see them on the road here in the UK. Years ago, my brother, who lives in Canada, sent him the chrome horse off a mustang he had bought for spares. My son still treasure it and he's now twenty eight!

Hi Joan, this is looking great - I love how you used small amounts of the Bermuda Bay in the background to tie in the colour of the car, such a nice balance of colours.
