Color Throwdown Challenge #258

Hello everyone!!! It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Lynn is the hostess with the mostess this week and she has picked some warm, earthy colors for us to play with!! 
Sadly, we have to say good by to our August Guestie, Kendra Wietstock...didn't she make some fabulous projects for our challenges!! Thanks for joining us, Kendra!! Now I would like to introduce you to our September Guestie....Susan Roberts...thanks for joining us this month!!!!

My card features three different stamp sets: The little leaves from Paper Smooches Autumn Groves, The branch from the Craft's Meow's Happy Owlentine's Day, and the Owl image from Gina K's Birthday Hoot. First, the owl image was stamped on the white card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa. I then used my home made cloud template to sponge clouds with sage shadow ink. The owl, balloons, branch, and leaves were all paper pieced with scraps from my stash . The sentiment is from the same set and the twine and googly eyes 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 CTD258 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!!
