Color Throwdown #218!



Hello and happy hump day!  Wednesday means we have a new challenge for you at the Color Throwdown, and this week the fabulous Lynn Put is our hostess:)  I think this sweet little birdie she chose is just BEAUTIFUL!  Those colors are amazing!  I knew exactly what image I wanted to use as soon as I saw it:


This is one of the new stamps from Your Next Stamp named Holiday Joy Robin~ so sweet!  I colored this cutie the same colors as the inspiration picture and used a combo of Jillibean Soup Apple Cheddar Soup and Winter Tortellini and Spinach Soup.  I stamped the image twice, cut one out with Oval Nestabilities and embossed it with the CB Snowflake embossing folder.  I cut the bird out of the second stamped image and popped it up with a foam square.  The sentiment is one of 2 that comes with the set, and the layout is The Sweet Stop Sketch #183.  

We hope you'll play along with us this week!  Just link your projects on the Color Throwdown Blog HERE, and make sure you check out the rest of the awesome DT creations while you're there!

Thank you so much for stopping by.  We have a sick household once again.  My poor daughter just gets sick so often this time of year with asthma/pneumonia type symptoms and Carson and I have a bit of a cold. I'm thinking a trip to the doctor may be on our to do list today if my daughter still has a fever this morning:(  Hope your day is better!

Just had to pop back over to your blog as I totally forgot to comment on the race! I agree with you...a bit out of character, but I'm not sad as I think the 15 had it "owed" to him - lol!
