Color Throwdown Challenge

Okay, I have to explain this photo. When I was taking a picture of this card, the soft sky wasn't showing up, so I put a piece of pumpkin pie underneath it....wow, that did the trick. In case you can't tell, the flowers are punched out of barely banana cardstock scallop punch, and then cut to be made into flower petals. If I wasn't challenged to use the soft sky, I think I would have put it on chocolate chip instead, but this will work. This is just a close up of the flowers and the textured leaves, just ran through the crimper.
Gonna get this posted on the Color Throwdown website, and off to bed for me. I'm tired from playing so hard with the grandkids today. I love having them home again.

9 thoughts to ponder from those I care about:
