Color Throwdown

Check out the new Color Throwdown Challenge where Barbara is our hostess with these fab earthy colors (love those draperies)!

BABY ALERT!!!  We interrupt this Color Throwdown post to announce our new grand-daughter, Quinn, arrived last evening around 9 PM!  6 lbs. 8 oz. and 20 1/2" long!  Friday can't come soon enough to make the trip to see her and her proud mommy and daddy!  CAN.  NOT.  WAIT.

On to my CTD card...I started with the SU Kinda Eclectic set then thought I'd add a couple of punched tickets. That's where I did a U-turn in my planning process and decided to turn it into a boy baby card!  The tiny safety pin is MFT's Oh Baby Die-Namic and the baby rattle is a PTI die that coordinates with their Baby Button Bits set.

We are welcoming Karren Johnson of Stamping Stuff as our star stamper this week! Be sure and play along with us and you just might be in the spotlight next week by being our guest star stamper!  You don't have to have exact colors to play along, but you do need to have a close resemblance.  Be sure and link your creation to the linky tool at the bottom of the current challenge post on the Color Throwdown Challenge blog.
