Color Throwdown #311

CTD311 cropped
Happy Hump Day, my friends!  I'm ready for this week to be over already... how about you?  If your week is feeling as long as mine, maybe we can make it better with a little Color Throwdown?  Barbara is our hostess this week with some pretty colors!

I picked up a new stamp set a month ago, and finally got around to using it this week!
CTD311
I just couldn't resist this To Thine Own Shelf stamp set from Simon Says Stamp when I saw it on Debby Hughes' blog awhile back.  That "I blame my shelf" sentiment just CRACKS. ME. UP!  The stamp set comes with a bunch of books and different width shelves and other things to put on the shelf, along with a few other great sentiments.  Very fun set!
For my card layout, I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #237 for this week, and I used a tag for the focal piece so that I could enter the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Tag It! challenge.
Be sure to stop by the CTD blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for plenty of inspiration...
