Color Throwdown Challenge #315

Hello everyone!!! We had a busy weekend with the second church garage sale (everything was 1/2 price this weekend) and my cousins were here visiting from Iowa. They left yesterday for Denver to visit their grandson and then back home. We ate out every, KFC, burgers, Tex-Mex....I think I'm ready for some good old home cooking. Not sure who is going to cook but we will figure that out later...LOL!!! Anyway....

It's Wednesday so that means it's time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!!! It's sweet Jodi's week to host and don't you just love the pretty fall colors she picked!!! My green is a little bright so put on your shades before you go any further!!!!

I pulled out my Reverse Confetti Forever Fall stamp set plus several RC dies along with the SFYTT #17 sketch for my card today. The sentiment was stamped with Cajun Craze onto the vanilla cardstock and cut out with the RC banner die from the Tag Me die set. The Doin' the Wave dies were used to cut out the yellow wavy diecuts and the circle was cut with one of the Circle 'n Scallops dies. The heart was stamped with So Saffron, cutout and popped up with a foam dot. The acorn was stamped with Cajun Craze, cutout, and popped up on the heart..... the twine and sewing on the background paper finishes 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 CTD315 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.
