Hello everyone!!! Can you believe it's Wednesday again!!! We went to our granddaughter's high school choir concert Monday night, two of the grands are getting their braces on today, and Thursday evening we have our grandson's band concert...the choir banquet is Friday night and our youngest granddaughter's softball game is Saturday morning. Phew!!! I think I have it all straight, now...LOL!! Then we start again next week with more softball, graduation, an anniversary, and a birthday....the hubs better get used to Subway and Sonic because cooking isn't on the list!!!! Anyway....Tammy is our hostess for today's Color Throwdown Challenge and she has picked some bold and beautiful colors...aren't they purty!!!

My card features the sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Fabulous Flamingo stamp was stamped on the RC Tag Me die and the flowers from the RC Petals 'n Posies Confetti Cuts were scattered below the tag. The Reverse Confetti SFYTT sketch was used along with papers from Doodlebugs Sun Kissed 6x6 paper pad. 


Two different embossing folders were used on the background and the twine and sewing finish it off.
