Happy Wednesday!

It's time for The Color Throwdown challenge for the week, and I just love participating! I like that they give a little inspiration sneak peek on Facebook each Tuesday, so I can usually get a card made and ready for the next day when the challenge goes live.

I've been wanting to try out the new MFT Stripes Cover Up die and it worked perfectly for my design! I added a sentiment panel with some die cut letters/numbers and my card was nearly complete.  I stamped a little tied bow and added a flower and some gems and called it done. Pretty quick on this little birthday card today!

Here is the color inspiration for the week.  Be sure to play along too! And remember, you don't have to have the exact colors.  They want you to use the closest match you have.  You can see my blue is a bit more navy - but that's ok. It's all good!

See you tomorrow!
