Hi there. It's Wednesday and time for another Color Throwdown challenge. I will go ahead and say that when I saw this combo, I loved all of it...EXCEPT the Melon Mambo! As much as I love that color, I just didn't see it fitting in with the other colors. I was dead wrong! :)

Here are this week's colors:

And here is my card:

Though I had my reservations, I found that Melon Mambo stamps a shade off from Rose Red on Vanilla card stock, so it actually blended in really nicely. In case you can't tell, the Rose Red is the top and bottom shade and the Melon Mambo is in the middle. 

I just love the way this card turned out. I think the distressed look of the ink on the chevrons works well with the way the flower stamps. These are two of my favorite Papertrey Ink stamps and I like them together! I found a little flower button in my Papertrey stash that I think works perfectly with the rest of the card.

Here are links to the other ladies playing this week..go check them out!!


I hope you find time to play along. I would love to see what you do with the colors! Thanks for stopping by!!

Gorgeous, Keva!!! Your cards are always have such a classic style and this one is no different. Love the contrast between the sentiment image and the chevrons.

Have to agree with u Keva, the button goes really well with all the colors. This is a GREAT card and I love the simple way it is delievered. But yet not simple, very polished. Thanks for sharing your talents with us. ekc
