Color Throwdown #247

Hello you can see I am a little late with my Color Throwdown post...I was in the ER with my son yesterday evening, all night, and he was finally admitted this morning. You would think I'd learn not to put things off to the last minute...LOL!!! Any way...on with the's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! 

It's Bar's turn to host the challenge and she picked a patriotic theme for this week!! July 4th will be here before we know it!!!

I decided to make a patriotic card using papers from Pebbles and stamps from Taylored Expressions Delightful Day set.  The flags were cut free hand and  a die was used for the rick rack. The little pinwheels were stamped on the paper, cutout, and paper pieced...pearls were added to the centers and the the twine 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 CTD247 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
