Color Throwdown #202


Hey gang, I'm back with the Color Throwdown this week!  I took a little time off from the challenges over the past month, jumped back in for the celebration of #200 and am now back again full time.  A little break was just what I needed, and I don't think anyone even missed me anyway!  LOL

I just LOVE the vibrant colors in the inspiration photo I chose for this week's colors, and I hope you'll like them, too.  Remember, you don't have to have these exact colors... I know, I know Bermuda Bay is a retired color.  Just use whatever you have that is most similar.

My youngest daughter is heading off to horseback-riding camp next week and needed a pair of Western-style boots to wear while she's there.  I did NOT want to spend a chunk of money on boots I doubt she'll wear again, so my sweet sister sent a wonderful pair of cowgirl boots for Kelsey to wear next week.  They're even a little burgundy in color, so I decided to use my Pure Innocence Cowgirl from My Favorite Things this week with some purple boots so that Kelsey can send a thank you note to her Aunt Kendra.


The layout for my card is from the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club sketch #81, and I added some Die-Namics to my card for embellishment... the Country Charms and Fishtail Flags STAX for the sentiment.  I also added a woodgrain background with an embossing folder, and papers from Stampin' Up! and Bo Bunny.  My sweet cowgirl is colored with Copic markers on Copic X-Press It blending card.

Stop over at the Color Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and visit my CTD sisters for more inspiration...



Thanksabunch for stopping by!
