Color Throwdown Challenge #305

Hello everyone!! Hope all of you have had a wonderful week!!! We are finally calming down here...the grands have all gone home, the sheets are all washed, kids stuff put away until Christmas break, dusting, sweeping, and bathrooms all cleaned...phew!!!! Now it's time for a little me time....Woot!!!! I will finally get to play in the craft room during office hours and not during the wee hours of the night/morning...LOL!!!!'s Wednesday again and time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Lori has picked some bold and bright colors for us to play with....they look so pretty together!!!

My card features the Cherish Every Moment stamp set from Taylored Expressions and the sentiment is from the TE Branching Out set. 

The image was stamped twice with Memento Tuxedo Black....the large flower was cutout, colored with Copics, and popped up over the other stamped image.  The Sweet Sunday Sketch #231 was used along with a doily, ribbons, sewing, and embossing on the background layer. 

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 CTD305 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.
