Color Throwdown Challenge #356

Hello everyone!! I hope you have had a wonderful week with lots of stamping time!!! It's been too hot around here to do much of anything....I'm sure ready for fall!! My granddaughter, Mackenzie, is here for a few days so I guess we will be spending lots of time in the air conditioned's a girl thing...LOL!!! Anyway...

It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!! Broni is our hostess and she has picked some bold and beautiful colors for us to play with!!! 

My card features the WPlus9 Folk Art Floral Dies...the birds and birdhouse were cut out of pumpkin pie and dusty durango cardstock and the leaves were cut out of wild wasabi and gumball green. They were adhered to the tag that was cut with a MFT die. The sentiment is from the WPlus9 Very Vintage Florals stamp set and was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. 

The background paper is from Doodlebug's Kraft in Color 6x6 paper pad and We R Memory Keepers Chalkboard 6x6 paper pad. The black pearls for the eyes and the button and twine finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD356 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd356 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. 

You will find all the challenge details on the Color Throwdown Blog.

What a super duper use of these vivid colors! Love the bird theme and stitching detail! Reminds me that I need to crank up my sewing machine more often!
