Color Throwdown #19/Sketch Saturday #25

I had a great weekend, I hope ya'll did too! I got a chance to crop/stamp and that's always a huge plus for me.

A couple of weeks ago, my favorite local scrapbook store closed. She hadn't ordered new product in a long while, and there was no cardstock left. I can't crop without cardstock!!! So, yesterday, my friend Mel, and 2 of my daughters...well, we took a road trip to Memory Mania! I bought some cardstock, some new patterned paper (mostly Christmas) and a Disney scrapbook! I've been looking forever, and I hadn't seen anything I liked until yesterday.

I got home in a great mood and I started working on a few cards. I combined the Sketch Saturday and Color Throwdown challenges. The colors were Whisper White, Bordering Blue, Not Quite Navy and Bravo Burgundy. Man this was a hard combo!

And I used this fabulous sketch! And I really thought (and I was right) that it challenge me to think!

Sorry that my card is so dark, my backyard was so shady and I couldn't get a lot of sunlight. Hopefully, I'll finish doing the "deep" cleaning of my kitchen that I've started for the holidays, and I can try inside.
