Color Throwdown Challenge #337

Hello everyone...hope you are having a great week!!! It's hump day so it's down hill to the weekend...yay!!! Yesterday we celebrated my Mother's 95th birthday with cake and ice cream....she got lots of flowers so guess who will be digging in the dirt later today...LOL!!! It was in the 80's yesterday and I'm sure today will be the same...I better get out my summer clothes and put away the sweatshirts!! Anyway...It's Wednesday and that means it's time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Barbara is our hostess and she has picked some warm, pretty colors...Kraft, lt. Blue, Green, and Orange. They are perfect colors for a summery birthday card for one of my Grands!!

My card features several Taylored Expressions stamp sets: Sunshiny Day for the bird, If Dogs Could Talk Stamp and Die Combo for the pup, and Paw-some Stamp and Die Combo for the sentiment. 

The background Salt Water Taffy cardstock was embossed with the Cloudy Days Embossing Folder....both the images and sentiment were stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. The images were colored with Copics and popped up with foam dots. The Little Bits - Flowers and Stems dies were used for the flower and the Wispy Grass Border die was used to cut out the grass. A little sewing, enamel dots, and rounded corner finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD337 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your cretions!! Also, please use #ctd337 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
