Color Throwdown & SSSC

There's another Color Throwdown Challenge on board and Tammy has some awesome fall colors for us! They were perfect for me to FINALLY ink up these mum images from PTI!  They have coordinating dies with this set, so no fussy cutting is needed.  I'm using Karen Giron's sketch for her Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

I started with stamping the Sanded BG in Baked Brown Sugar ink, then distressed and sponged the
edges.  The SU jute ribbon literally just arrived on my doorstep right before I made this card and worked perfectly in the sketch design! What you can't really see in the photo is the touch of shimmer on the mums from using my Wink of Stella clear brush this new tool!

Here's hoping you will join us... and remember - you don't have to have 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, CTD260.
