Color Throwdown #47 and Mojo Monday Sketch



Time for another Color Throwdown, and this time Danielle is our hostess and she tried to kill me with these colors! Seriously, I was ready to throw in the towel but I came up with something that I now love, and I KNOW you can, too! Give it a try!

For my card, I decided to use this oldie-but-goodie stamp that a former co-worker bought for me years ago. She found it in a dollar store, and thought it was so cute, and she knew I was a stamper so she bought it for me! The stamp is from Image Tree, and I have to agree... this little stack of farm animals is the cutest! I hope you like it, too! My layout isn't quite the same, but was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch, also!

Check out these creations from the rest of the Throwdown team...

So, please join us today or later this week for the Color Throwdown! Leave a direct link to your creation on the Throwdown blog so we can see your work, and if you upload to an online gallery remember to use CTD47 for your tag! Remember, YOU could be chosen as Featured Stamper and then be in the running to be our Guest Designer for August!

Thanks for stopping by!
