CTD257- Life!!

It's another fabulous color combo at The Color Throwdown. This week our colors are brought to us by Lori- Dirty Lori!! Lori became a Dirty Girl at Splitcoaststampers this month- I was going to link to the news but, you have to be a SCS fan club member.

Aren't they gorgeous!!

I'm stretching summer here!! Love fall but, after that comes winter.... yuk!!

Stamped a colorful background using Verve's Surely Goodness (flowers) and Leaves (Sunny Days) and the sentiment is from Verve's Words of Wisdom. Dontcha' love when you can use more than one set on a card-- mix-n-match!! Used Amber's Week 1 sketch.
For more inspiration, you'll want to stop by and visit the other team members' blogs as well as our talented August guestie - Kendra Wietstock, Kendra's Card Company!

Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits
Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor
Joan Ervin - Stamping With Passion
Lori Tecler - Inking Aloud
Lynn Put - The Queen's Scene 
Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy
 Wanda Cullen - Cullen-ary Creations 
Remember, if you don't have the exact colors, use whatever you have that's close...the color police won't come after you--this is all about having fun!  If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD257.  Also, when linking up your card using the linky tool at the bottom of the post, please link to your specific post, not a generic link to your blog.  

When you are finished with your creation, head over to the Color Throwdown blog to add your entry to the Inlinkz tool.  Can't wait to see what you create!   

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

What a beautiful card, Vickie! I love the flowered background and the multiple ribbons/button embellishment is awesome! That's a great die cut that the sentiment is on too! Yay for stretching the summer as far as we can!

What a great card! I recognized the sketch and the flowers, but I had to come see what the leaves were from! :) Love your layered dies, too!

WOW, that is such a fabulous background! Love the summery look and yes, I'm sad to see summer come to an end, too! Hate to think of the bitter cold that they are predicting this winter!
