Kind Words...

Ahh, Saturday! Don't you just love them? College Football and warm apple cider! Ack! I just love Fall. I made today's card VERY last minute. It's for both this week's Color Throwdown and the SFYTT from last week. This is my first time playing along with the Throwdown. I've seen others play, and when I saw the colors I was inspired. I used to love Perfect Plum so much years ago, but I have not used it a lot lately. I really like it with the Early Espresso, too. Great combo! Here is the sketch:



And here are the colors from the throwdown:


So, without further ado (as per my normal..lol), here is my card: 





Such a fun card to make. Love those PTI butterflies with the Verve sentiment. See, we CAN all get along. :)

Well, College GameDay is back on, so I am off to start my football Saturday. Thanks for dropping by!
