Color Throwdown Challenge #338

Hello everyone!! The Belton Iris Show was last week and I actually had some Iris to show this year. I won two second place ribbons and an honorable mention. Several people from the Austin club came to our show and walked away with most of the blue ribbons,  best of class, and best of show awards. My prettiest Iris opened up two days after the show...wouldn't you know!! Also, my granddaughter, Autumn,  had her prom on Saturday so we all drove to Cedar Park (north of Austin) to take pictures. She looked sooo pretty and sooo grown up....when did that happen???'s Wednesday and time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!! Broni is our hostess this week and she has picked colors I wouldn't have put together on my own but once I started working with the more masculine pallette, I grew to love them!! 

My card features the cute Little Bits - Kite and Little Bits - Bicycle from Taylored Expressions.  The background was sponges through a stencil and a flourish stamp from the TE Wine a Little stamp set was stamped behind the bicycle. 

The sentiment is from the TE Delightful Day stamp set and the enamel dots and washi tape finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD338 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your cretions!! Also, please use #ctd338 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.
