Color Throwdown #268

swatch 268
OK, who’s ready to Throwdown some colors this week?  It’s my turn as hostess and I have this photo that inspired my color choices today.  I think you could do something bright with this for a birthday or whatever, or you could go with a muted version of the colors for a Fall card (which was my original intention, but my card took a different turn).  I hope you’ll join us over at the Color Throwdown blog and play along!
I was cruising around on Pinterest one day recently and spotted this fabulous Betsy Veldman creation and just had to try to duplicate it for my card today.  I don’t think I came close to how cute Betsy’s card is, but I tried…
CTD268
For my card, I used the Fresh Cut Florals stamps and dies from Wplus9 Design, and the chevron stamps are from the LLD Document It-Right This Way stamp set from My Favorite Things.
Be sure to stop over at the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and stop and see my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…
