Throwing Down The Color again!

Many moons ago I participated in The Color Throw Down Challenge blog which was super fun. Well, time got away from me for awhile but I am happy to say I jumped back in this week.

Here are this weeks colors.

Here is what I came up with.

Cards are not usually my thing but I do send a lot of cards due to so many one on one trades. So I thought, why not create cards for this challenge that I can use. 

This particular card was created from a DCWV card blank, a scrap of brown card stock edged with a metallic marker, a recycled thank you card someone sent to me, a scrap of ribbon that came on something I purchased, a paper flower and a large brad.

What an excellent and fun way to create and share.
