Color Throwdown #65 with Stamping Bella


I'm so excited for the Color Throwdown this week because we're being sponsored by one of my most favorites companies, Stamping Bella! Be sure to stop by the Throwdown blog to check out the details, including how you can be eligible to win $25 in Bella Bucks!

Danielle is our hostess this week and her colors were inspired by that hot summer item, Lemonade paper from Basic Grey! I however, forgot that she mentioned that and dug through my stash of papers until I ran across this October Afternoon paper with the same colors! I was thrilled to find this, and along with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #44 for my layout I am totally happy with how my card turned out!
Had to finish the inside, too (of course!)
My Throwdown sisters have rocked this color challenge with the awesome stamps we received from Emily at Stamping Bella, so please be sure to visit their blogs and leave some love!

Barbara * Lisa, October Guest Designer
