Color Throwdown #273

Hello everyone!! I hope you had a very Happy New Year!!!!! We went out to eat with friends and watched the New Year come's hard to believe it's 2014!!!! 
I think we are supposed to eat all kinds of yucky stuff today for good luck...cabbage and  black eyed peas are not on my menu today...I'm a pizza kinda girl....LOL!!! 

 Anyway...welcome back to the Color Throwdown Challenge!! We all had a wonderful holiday and are now ready to stamp away!! Tammy picked our color palette for this turquoise is a little off but that's ok. Use what you have and join in on all the fun!!! Also...I want to say a fond farewell to Cindy Lawrence, our Nov/Dec Guestie...we loved stamping with you, are a super star!!!!

Now,  I want to welcome a new Color Throwdown DT member....drum roll, please!!!! Congrats and welcome t0 Monika Davis...Woot!!!! We are all sooo excited to have Monika on our team!!!!

I'm not done, yet....I also want to say welcome to our January Guest Designer, 
 Linda McClain!!! We are all thrilled you will be joining us this month!!!!

My card features  Unity stamps from their August 2009 kit of the month....I just love this little bike!! It was stamped with Smoky Slate on the white card stock and washi tape was used for the road. The sentiment was stamped with Basic Gray and the MME enamel shapes finish it off. Very CAS but oh, so fun!!

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 CTD273 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!
