Color Throwdown

It's Wednesday and you know what that means! It's time for another Color Throwdown challenge and Joan has some fabulous colors for us!  I went with a sympathy sentiment from Verve's New Mercies set. Unfortunate that I need yet another sympathy card this week!  I stamped off first with the Baked Brown Sugar ink - not sure why it appears gold in the photo.  :-( don't have to have the exact colors.  Use something close and then link it up on the Color Throwdown blog using the linking tool at the bottom of the post.  If you post to an online gallery, please use the keyword, CTD265.

 For more inspiration, you'll want to check out the rest of the design team's creations!
