They Don't Call It a Challenge for Nothing!

Whew! It's Color Throwdown Challenge day and this week is a toughie! Broni kicked my butt this week with these colors. Check em' out...

And here's what I came up with:

I started with Everyday Button Bits from Papertrey Ink which I stamped in River Rock and added in these blue buttons from Stampin' Up. I added in some stitching and a little ribbon and called it done!
I cannot wait to see all your wonderful creations this week. You can play along by making a card or paper craft project and uploading it to your blog or online gallery then direct link it to the Color Throwdown Blog using the InLinkz tool at the bottom of the post. Easy Peasy. Make sure you visit the blog for oodles more inspiration from the design team members. And here are they're blogs for your viewing pleasure:
Tammy Hershberger

LeAnne Pugliese
