Color Throwdown Challenge #169 & Inkspirations Challenge #97

Hello friends! The Color Throwdown  challenge is one I wanted to try because I was intrigued with the unusual color combination and wasn't sure how to go about using the colors. I felt challenged to come up with something. It has been a very, very long time since I checked out the blog. I combined it with the layout sketch #97 found at the Inkspirations Challenge blog. Did I rise to the challenge? ...I'm not sure... I'm not well right now, so that might have something to do with it.

As you can see I had a stamping issue on the darker blue...but having the flu I'm in no frame of mind, or body for that fact, to try doing it all over again. So it is what it is. Here's another view.


Thank you for stopping by today and checking out my challenge entry.

With the season soon upon us and we're all getting busier. All the best to everyone in your preparations. And, happy crafting to you all. We all know that there is always some last minute crafting stuff that creeps up on as the holidays approach and get closer with each passing day. All the best!

I call this one gorgeous! I love the way you used the colors so boldly and yet achieved a delicate balance with the fancy tag layer in the focal image. Love it! Congratulations on getting honorable mention! Hope you are feeling MUCH better!
