Color Throwdown #283

Hello everyone!! The hostess for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge is the wonderful Wanda and she has picked a real striking color combo. Since I have Grands staying with me this week for spring break, I went real CAS. I don't have a lot of time because I can't to get out of the seems we just finish one meal and they are ready for another!! We may have to order pizza tonight because I'm already sick of cooking and it's only Wednesday...LOL!!!! Anyway....

My card features stamps from Papertrey Ink's Mums the Word set. The mums were stamped with Tangerine Tango and the leaves and stems were stamped with Certainly Celery. The Savvy Dies thanks die was used to cut the sentiment out of Basic Gray card stock and the sewing and enamel dots finish  it off. 

I hope these pretty colors inspire you to join our challenge...I'd love to see what you create!!!! 

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 CTD283 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.
