Color Throwdown #209


I can't tell you how happy this photo makes me:)  I just LOVE FALL!!!  We really don't have a fall in Florida, but that doesn't stop me from pulling out my pumpkins and leaves, and sunflowers, and cinnamon pumpkin candles, and scarecrows, etc.:)  Lynn picked out our gorgeous colors this week, and this is what I came up with:


I used this gorgeous wreath from the Verve set Harvest Blessings and the leaves are from the same set.  The sunflower is from the PTI Simple Sunflower Stamp Set with coordinating dies.  The sentiment comes from the PTI set Fall Elegance, and I used the Deconstructed Sketch #68 for my layout.  

Make sure you check out the Color Throwdown Blog to see the rest of the stunning DT creations and to link your projects!  Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!
