Color Throwdown Challenge #306

Hello everyone!! How are you on this wonderful Wednesday morning?? We have been canning tomatoes....I'm beginning to think it would be easier to buy them at the store but I don't dare tell my hubs!! Gardening keeps him from going to bars and chasing wild women so I guess I'll keep on canning....LOL!!!! Anyway, it's time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge and Cindy has chosen a beautiful color combo!!! I never would have thought to use these colors together...I will be using them again, for sure!!!!

My card features the You are Wonderful stamp set from Taylored Expressions....the image and sentiment were stamped with Night of Navy and colored with Copics ( I clear embossed the Night of Navy ink so it wouldn't smear the Copics). 

The enamel dots are the only embellies. I didn't have any plum or navy dots so I colored some white ones with it when a plan comes together!!!

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 CTD306 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.
