Color Throwdown Challenge #268

Hello everyone!! It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge...Woot!!!  It's Tammy's turn to play hostess and she picked such a pretty color pallette!!! 

This is also for Cath Edvalson...The Moxie Fabulous of them all!!!! She was the Trends Editor for PaperCrafts Magazine and  the hostess of the Moxie Fab Blog for many years.....I am sooo sad she is leaving!!!  I'm  thankful that I found the Moxie Fab World blog.....I  learned so much from her!!! She inspired many, many crafters and gently pushed us  to go beyond our comfort zones....she will be missed!!!!  Cath...the best is yet to come....hugs to you, sweet girl!!!

My card features stamps from the Reverse Confetti's Forever Fall set and papers from Basic Grey's Konnichiwa 6x6 paper pad. I also used the Reverse Confetti's Sketch For You To Try.

The sentiment was stamped on the patterned paper and the heart was stamped with Melon Mambo, cutout, and adhered over the twine bow...sewing was done on the background layers and the button, stick pin, and the sequins 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 CTD268 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
