Color Throwdown 124

Friday, January 14, 2011

It seems that I'm in a shabby mood.  It started yesterday when I made a Valentine's Day card and continues today with a card I made for the Color Throwdown 124 color challenge.

Brown and blue together are a particular favorite of mine.  Actually brown and any color are favorites of mine!  And I thought the Melon Mambo was a great accent color.

Despite how this may look, it really is Melon Mambo under all that distressing!  A wonderful Antique Brad finishes off the flower nicely!  For this card, I used the Splitcoast Sketch Challenge for my layout.  It has been ages since I've done any challenges on Splitcoast.  In fact, it's been ages since I've uploaded anything to Splitcoast.  I hope I remember how it's done!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
