Color Throwdown #152


It's time for another Color Throwdown, and this week is my turn to pick the colors! I saw a mix of these colors in a pile of scraps on my table one day and thought they were quite pretty together (contrary to what SOME people might think *not pointing fingers at Bar!*) LOLOL I rarely use Soft Suede or River Rock, so in the spirit of being challenged, I thought we'd give this a try today! I hope you'll join us!

For my card, I discovered that this paper from October Afternoon... one of my favorites actually, was a great match for these colors! I pulled out my Verses Rubber Stamps and chose to use this Cheer You Up stamp along with some pretty new Linen ribbon from Flourishes, a Prima flower, a leaf stick-pin (thanks Bar!) and the High Tea Doily Die-Namics from My Favorite Things.

My layout was inspired by the sketch at Card Positioning Systems this week, although my design took a turn and strayed somewhat from the sketch! Still, it was inspiring!
My Throwdown sisters have more inspiration for you, so be sure to check them out...
