Color Throwdown #100


I had a lot of fun making my card for the Color Throwdown this week!  I think I had every kind of supply I own out at some point.  It seemed like everything I reached for sparked a new idea.  I didn't have the exact colors, but I think I'm close enough.  There are tons of great prizes up for grabs, so be sure to play along with this challenge - you have until Monday night to submit your project.

I found this pretty ribbon tucked in an old cigar box full of ric rac, ribbon, and buttons that I got from my grandma.  I would love to know how old it is!  The tag is from Color Couture Volume 2, I was so excited when I saw it peeking up at me with 3 of the colors I needed for this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!
