Color Throwdown Challenge #358

Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!!! I have been reorganizing my craft room...trying to clear out a corner so I can install floor to ceiling cabinets. I won't know what to do if I don't have to trip over boxes and baskets of *stuff* on the floor....LOL!!! Anyway....It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  Jodi is our hostess and she has picked a clean and crisp color combo: navy blue, yellow, and white. 

My card features the balloons from the Taylored Expressions Up, Up, and Away Cutting Plate. They were cut out of patterned paper..... the twine was tied onto the bottom and adhered with glue dots. The balloons were then adhered to the background patterned paper with foam dots. 

The divided sentiment was created with the Taylored Expressions  Think Happy Thoughts Stamp and Die combo and the sewing finishes it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD358 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd358 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. 

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