Color Throwdown

It's Color Throwdown Challenge time again and this week, the talented Lynn Put is our hostess! Check out this fabulous fall inspiration photo...LOVE these warm fall colors!

I thought these colors would be perfect for a collage of leaves in the background.  I used a set by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Season of Change and stamped 4 different leaf images in Summer Sun, Old Olive, Really Rust and Cherry Cobbler on kraft CS.  The sentiment was stamped on a flag cut out with MFT's Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics - a "can't do without it" set of dies IMO! :-)  The little pennant flag banner is a new die by Verve with tiny gold circle stickers by EKSuccess added. play along, you don't have to have the exact colors.  You can choose something that's close in color.  Please use the keyword CTD209 if you upload to a public gallery and be sure to add your card to the link service at the bottom of the CTD blog post.  For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the rest of the design teams' blogs, as well as our talented guestie - Sherry Cheever!

This is beautiful Wanda! Your back ground almost looks like pretty designer paper the way you've stamped the collection of these leaves and I love the way you used the banner for your sentiment with the texture of the woven ribbon!
