Today begins our Color Throwdown Challenges!  I have teamed up with five awesome stampers and we have started a blog.  Every Wednesday, we "throw down" a color challenge and invite you to play along!  You can view the blog here.

Today is my day!  The colors I have chosen are :

This card uses my new Verve set, Petals & Stems.  I have to tell you, I ordered this set Saturday, and had it in my mailbox Monday!!! Unbelievable service, and the stamps are EXCELLENT!  I can't wait to play some more!! It also uses the sketch challenge from Our Creative Corner, here.   And finally,  in honor of my friend Denise (peanutbee), who has everybody in the world stamping on the inside of their cards, I did a little too:07-09-08 CTD inside

I love this color combo. I've got the paper out, so we'll see if I can get anything accomplished tonight or if it will have to wait until morning.
