Last Minute Laura Strikes Again!

So I have a problem! I think and think and think all week about what I'm going to do for the upcoming Color Throwdown and I never allow myself enough time to get into my craft room and create something without any pressure to get it done. So I start on Tuesday nights and then I panic when my design is looking like poop! HA!
So I am here, but I am late with my design, but, alas, I'm here afterall!
This week the colors are AWESOME!! Check it...

Seriously, Cherry Cobbler is awesome wih Soft Suede and my all time FAVE, Kraft. No, I'm not calling it Crumb Cake. I don't care that they changed the name. To me it's kraft!
So it occured to me that I wanted to play around with my Chicken Girl sets so I pulled out Just Skating By and It's A Snow Day. Combined with this week's colors and this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #164 here's what I came up with:

I took some creative liberties with the sketch. FOr instance, I went with a squarish card instead of the traditional A2 and somewhat altered the placement of my sentiment. I am glad I put fresh eyes on my card this morning instead of posting the dog I created last night :)

Ready to play along?? Just make a card using the Color Throwdown Challenge colors and upload it to the Color Throwdown blog using the InLinkz service. No Cherry Cobbler or Soft Suede? No worries! Just use what you have that's close!
Be sure to stop by and visit the blogs of the rest of the design team for some AWESOME inspiration!
