CTD #291- Hello!

Hey, hey, hey.... it's time for the next Color Throwdown challenge. Our colors are brought to us by my sweet friend  Wanda (soon to be a new grandma!!)        .

My card...
Still playing the retro thing... a new stencil... well, I have had it for a while and have been itching to use it... Isn't that stencil fun!! From Simon Says Stamp. Laid the stencil onto white cardstock and sponged with ink. Die cut the inked panel on a slightly slanted diagonal, die cut the WPlus9 sentiment twice, offset and popped up for a little dimension. Added a few enamel dots.

We have some exciting news to announce!  We have a new design team member...drum roll please...and a big welcome to the ultra-talented CINDY LAWRENCE from  The Creative Closet!  So happy to have Cindy joining us!  She has some fabulous coloring skills, so be sure and stop by her blog and say hello! 
We also have a new, talented stamper guesting this month - Annette Allen from My Clever Creations!  Welcome, Annette!

Mine is 5 things total... cardstock, ink, die cut, enamel dots, and a stencil... WOOT WOOT!!
