Color Throwdown #64


It's Wednesday again, which means time for another Color Throwdown! This week our challenge is generously being sponsored for a third time by Simon Says Stamp, and being hosted by Barbara! Be sure to stop by the Simon Says website to see all the incredible stamps and products they carry, and stop by the Throwdown blog for all the challenge details! Remember that you don't have to use these exact colors to play along... just whatever you have that is similar! We just want everyone to have fun!

For my card, I chose to use these whimsical flowers from Prima Marketing, and the sentiment comes from a Simon Says exclusive stamp set. I discovered that this October Afternoon paper I had on my shelf went very nicely with the color combo that Barbara chose for today, so I ran with it! I also got to use this pretty white crocheted flower that my sweet friend Kristin Bueter sent to me! She sent me four of these flowers that she made, and I've been hoarding them but decided this card just needed that sweet little flower today! I also used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #43 for the layout.
I hope you'll play along! Stop by the blogs of my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration!

Lisa, October Guest Designer
