Happy Daddy's Day & Color Throwdown #93

Hellooooo!!! I'm here today with this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #93 and I'm featuring it along with this week's new release from Chi Chi Memories called Happy Daddy's Day! Isn't this a great follow-up to the Mommy's Day set?

And here are the Throwdown colors for this week:

And here's how I put them together...

I kept the layout simple and let the image and the colors do the work....too simple? As soon as I saw this week's colors I went right to my paper stash and found this perfect piece from Basic Grey's Urban Prairie collection which is a perfect match! Exciting! I love when that happens! I layered it on matching card stock added some pretty ribbon and stitching and viola! Who says a Father's Day card has to be masculine? If it's from his little girl it can be cutesey!

The Happy Daddy's Day set retails in the Chi Chi Memories store for $4.75. Make sure to stop by and pick up your copy today! Father's Day is quickly approaching!
