POST 2: Today is Color Throwdown Challenge Day!

Can I just tell you how much fun I'm having being part of the Color Throwdown Challenge team this month?! These girls are a riot AND SUPER talented which is inspiring to me. I feel like I can learn a lot and ME LIKEY THAT!!!

So on to this week's fabulous Color Throwdown #92 colors...They're so yumski!
And here's my card:

As you can see I focused heavily on So Saffron, Baja Breeze and Kraft with only a wee little hint of Old Olive. You can see it though, RIGHT?
I decided to use this adorable clear stamp set from Chicken Girl Designs available at I {Heart} Papers called Hugs From A Bug . This bee image was just too cute not to use right away! And no surprise here, I used my new Thrift Shop papers from October Afternoon also available at I {Heart} Papers! The layout is my own and a very simply stated one. I also incorporated the use of this legal pad paper from My Mind's Eye. I love it's vintage-y feel and thought it coordinated well with my other papers.
