Color Throwdown #202


Good morning everyone!!! It's Wednesday again and time for another Color Throwdown Challenge!  The fabulous and very talented Tammy is our hostess and she has picked some mighty gorgeous colors for us this week!!!! Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors...use what you have that comes close...we want everyone to have a chance to play!!



When I saw the colors I just had to use my Stamp Oasis peacock from Rubbernecker Stamps....she deserves to be colored with such regal colors!! My new Bo Bunny Sweet Tooth paper was used in the background and sewing, distressing, flower trim, ribbon, and a new cameo stick pin finish it off.

This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Paper and Such Challenge - stitching, real or faux
2. Shopping our Stash Challenge - something new - Bo Bunny paper and stick pin
3. Stamp N Plus Challenge - anything goes
4. Allsorts Challenge - distressing
5. Crazy 4 Challenges - stitching - faux or real


Be sure to add CTD202 to the keywords when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!
