Color Throwdown #97



Time for another Color Throwdown, and this week Broni is our hostess! She just got back from a wonderful week at the beach, and these colors remind her of being there. We hope you'll make time to play along! It'll be good practice before the big Color Throwdown #100 Celebration coming up on July 7th! Participants are going to have the chance to win some fabulous prizes, so get your mojo going now so you'll be ready!

My card is a little boyish, so instead of Cameo Coral (which I'm out of!) I used some old Groovy Guava cardstock. And I couldn't resist yet another cute Pure Innocence image from My Favorite Things! (I think I have almost all of them in stock at the store and how I manage not to buy each one is beyond me!) The layout for my card is from Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #73, but to accomodate my image I used an oval instead of a circle.
My Throwdown sisters have some great inspiration for you today, so stop and check them out!
