Color Throwdown Challenge #259

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!!! Don't you just love the beautiful Fall colors that Melody chose for our far as I'm concerned, Fall can get here as soon  as possible!!!! I am sooo tired of the 100 degree weather.....I dream of 70-80 degree days...LOL!!!  Anyway...

My card today features the sweet little Fall wreath from Taylored Expressions Autumn Wreath set and the circle graphic from the Taylored Expressions September Stamp of the Month Sending Smiles.  The wreath was colored with Copics on Choice Buttercream card stock and it was cutout with the Seasonal Wreath die.  It was adhered to the background Doodlebug Happy Harvest designer paper with foam tape and twine was looped around the wreath and tucked behind the paper to look like it's hanging from the twine.  The circle graphics stamp was stamped with really rust ink onto the crumb cake card base, the sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, and the twine, button, and distressing 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 CTD259 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!!

Beautiful fall creation! It really is hard to get into the fall mode with the extra warm temps! Even here in VA it was nearly 90 degrees yesterday! This reminds me I need to get out my fall wreath to hang on my front door.
