Color Throwdown #345

First of all, please allow me one quick moment of proud mama indulgence…


Yay, she graduated!  There’s my baby girl, beaming after receiving her diploma!  This was on Sunday, and we have her party coming up on Saturday at our house.  Can’t wait to see family and friends!

OK, now… on to today’s Color Throwdown!  Wanda is our hostess today, and her colors were inspired by this wonderful photo that just screams summer time!

I guess my tendency with these colors was to lean towards red flowers, but I tried to think a little more outside the box.  I focused on the black and white instead, which led me to finally use my The Whole Herd stamp set from My Favorite Things

Color Throwdown #345

I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #271 for this week for the layout with my cute Bessie the cow!  Isn’t she cute there in her Stitched Circle STAX Die-Namics circle, with the Rolling Hills Die-Namics fence in the background?  I added a small cloud from the Cloud Trio Die-Namics in the sky, and used the Cow Print stencil in the background, sponged with Steel Grey hybrid ink.  This was a perfect card to make and send to my cousin, whose birthday I forgot last week!

Be sure to stop over at the Color Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration…
