The Color Throwdown - I'm their guest!


You could have heard my eeeeep from across the pond when I read I'd won last week's challenge at The Color Throwdown!!  To be their guest is such an honor - you all know by now how color-challenged I am, right? 

Here is the inspiration and colors for ctd446 this week:


As much as I love birds, there was another little friend that I wanted to play cards with today...

 
 
Just a little 'direct to stamp' Zig action was needed
to replicate those fun green, yellow, coral colors!

Essentials by Ellen Otterly Awesome, and Wonky Backdrops stamps and dies.
 
See!  Even a color-challenged gal can play!!  I hope you'll join me this week!

Thank you to The Color Throwdown team for making my day with that win ... it's always wonderful to win a randomly chosen challenge - but to be actually chosen?  Means tons!
