Color Throwdown # 98!

Hello and happy Wednesday! I can't believe a week has gone by since my last post. Time is flying by! I'm bringing to you today another fabulous Color Throwdown Challenge, #98. Bar is our hostess today and has selected a yummy combo for us this week.

This is how I decided to bring everything together...

I made a "skirt" for my card with my jumbo scallop punch and Mellow Moss decorative paper. I added in a bit of chocolate satin ribbon. For my focal point, I used the Mat Stack 2 die from PaperTrey Ink which I layered with a Blush Blossom center for my sentiment and a scalloped moss background. My images are both from Stampin' Up from the Great Friend and Pocket Silhouettes sets. I also added in a couple of buttons which I colored with a Copic to make them match.

Whatta ya think? I would love to hear from you!

Don't forget to head over to the CTD blog to upload your challenge card and while you're there, check out the list of prize sponsors that has GROWN since last week. Only two more weeks until our 100th celebration.
