Color Throwdown #269

Hello everyone!! It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge. Vickie is our hostess the week and she has picked some luscious Fall colors....I love Fall not only because of the colors but I know Thanksgiving is just around the corner...Woot!!!

My card features a Taylored Expressions stamp set called Falling for You....the leaf was stamped onto the pear pizzazz card stock with soft suede ink and cutout with the coordinating dies called Falling for You dies. The acorn was stamped on dusty durango and soft suede card stock and cutout with dies from the same set. The sentiment was also stamped with soft suede. 

I used the Retro Sketches #90 sketch, Doodlebugs Happy Harvest 6x6 paper pad, and 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 CTD269 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You can find out all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog
