Color Throwdown surprise..




Hey you guys! Well, today I have some amazing news! I have been asked to be a Design Team member for the Color Throwdown challenge. Can you believe it? I seriously almost fell out of my chair at work when I got the email from Tammy! Of course, I immediately said yes! I am so excited to join such a fabulous group of stampers AND ladies! There are also a few more "newbies" starting this week, so head over to the blog and check it out!


This week our hostess is Tammy and she chose this color palette:


I really like the Creamy Caramel thrown in there. It used to be one of my favorite Stampin Up colors, but I haven't used it in a while. I will have to change that. It has the neutrality of kraft, but creamier..I love it! And you all know how much I like Early Espresso...almost as much as an actual espresso! :)

I decided to make a card for a friend with a birthday this week. I had this patterned paper that I bought at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago that I thought would work well with the color palette AND be perfect for the recipient of the card. Here you go:


Well, thanks for stopping in and sharing my awesome news with me. I hope you have a great rest of the day! :)
