Color Throwdown Challenge #359

Hello everyone!! We have had an exciting week so far...we went to our 5 year old grandson Jacob's  football game on Saturday (those little boys are all sooo cute!!) and our 12 year old grandson Cody's first middle school football game Monday night. Cody made a touchdown in the last quarter of the game...we were all so excited and screemed so loud that Cody said he could hear us from the field...silly old grandparents...LOL!!! Anyway...

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

My card features the Taylored Expressions  Sky High - Hot Air Balloons dies... three balloons were cut out of various patterned papers and popped up with foam dots on the white cardstock background that was embossed with the Taylored Expressions Cloud Embossing Folder.  

The sentiment is from the TE Sky High Sentiments stamp set and the enamel dots and twine finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD359 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #ctd359 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites.

Love those balloons- perfect for these colors!! Wow- a 5 year old football game- I had no idea they played that young!! Yes, I've been known to scream a little loud myself... it's a grandparents prerogative!!

Love the pops of color in the balloons against the embossed clouds! What a fun card! So great that you are able to attend your grands' games! I'd be a boisterous cheerleader as well!
