Color Throwdown Challenge #327

Hello everyone!! Hope you had a good week!!! We had a few cold, rainy days but it was in the 80's here yesterday!! It's time for me to get outside and clean out a few flower beds and plant a some pansies....maybe I better take down my Christmas tree first. I'm just a little late with that project but I can see a light at the end of the tunnel!!! Anyway....

It's Wednesday and time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!  Wanda is our hostess and she has picked such a rich color pallette...purple, turquoise, lime green, and yellow. I can't wait to see what you do with these colors!!

I pulled out my new Reverse Confetti stamp set and dies for today's card.  The sentiment is from the In a Big Way set and the flowers were cut with the 
Petals 'n Posies Confetti Cuts. The scallop was cut with the Double Edge Scallop Border and the enamel dots finish 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 CTD327 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.

I just had to post some pics of Mackenzie's first home game...they won 1-0..WOOT!!!

She can throw the ball over 60 feet....must be all the power lifting she does!! She can bench press 200 lbs!!

She just kicked the ball, slid to a stop,  and the other player jumped over her....glad they didn't crash into each other!!!

Thanks for stopping by...have a super fun and inky day!!!

That birthday sentiment is super fun and the card beautiful, Joan!

Best of all are the wonderful photos of your granddaughter. My youngest granddaughter is a junior this year leaving us just a year and a half of school events to experience! We will miss them greatly.
