Color Throwdown Challenge #377

Hello everyone!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Today is also my parents 71st wedding anniversary!!! Can you believe that??? They are both in their 90's and still living in their own sister and her family are flying in tonight from Iowa and Chicago to help us celebrate. Also, my grandson, Cody, is having surgery today. Needless to say, today is going to be a wild ride!! Hopefully, Cody will be able to go home in the afternoon...he turns 13 in a couple of weeks so he's hoping everything will be healed in time for his big teen birthday party!! 

Anyway...this is Lisa's first challenge and she has picked such an awesome color combo: kraft, gray, and yellow!! I never would have thought to put those colors together but after working with them, I will be using them again!!! 

I put my card together with a few wood cuts from Simple Stories' We Are Family collection. They were adhered to the background barn board designer paper and the frame was cut with a scalloped frame die from Pretty Pink Posh. The banner was hand cut and a little sewing was done along the edge. The flowers were die cut with Reverse Confetti dies and enamel dots from Doodlebug and a wood dot from We Are Memory Keepers finish it off. 

Remember, be sure to add CTD377 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!! Also, please use #377 and #colorthrowdown on social media sites. 

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