FTL with a little Color Throwdown!

I haven't had a chance to play along with these two challenges in awhile.. So I decided today I was going to create something no matter how long it took. It took awhile because I was working in between other things.. But I made something so I'm excited about that.

Here is this week's Color Throwdown... Reagal Rose, Early Espresso & Very Vanilla! When I think of Throwdown I think of that show on the Food Network.. with Bobby Flay..lol Speaking of Bobby Flay I got to meet him the other day and get his new cookbook signed.. I stood in line for over 4 hours with a million and one other people..lol

I really liked this week's layout over at Clean & Simple... It's got a unique twist to it with the bottom half of the sketch!


I struggled with my card a little bit.. but once I got into the groove of it everything flowed. It was the punch, Arrgghh!! That's all I'll say about that Blossom Punch! It was not a punch friendly day for me because the Ribbon border punch and the Butterfly punch gave me a hard time too. I wonder if it has something to do with the weather and my punch storage area?



I really like how the final project came out though.. My card base is Early Espresso with a layer of Very Vanilla and a ribbon border punched from Regal Rose.  I used the Triple Layer Blossom punch in Vanilla and Reagal Rose. The sentiment is from the stamp set Bold Blossom. The Butterfly Punch and the Rhinestones are Non Stampin' Up!



Head over to both of these Challenge Blogs and see their DT samples.. All are gorgeous! I hope everyone had a great weekend.. and your ready for the week ahead.  Thanks for stopping by!
