CTD262- Swell Birthday!!

Happy Wednesday!! Wanda picked the colors this week and I love them!! Isn't the inspiration pic fabulous.... it's definitely a fall theme.... only I used them a little bit differently!

Here's my card...

Still playing obsessing with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Art Deco Backgrounds. Experimenting with making my own backgrounds {I'm normally a designer paper girl and actually really should be using up my stash!!} Loved the Retrosketches layout this week and it worked perfectly with what I had in mind!! the "dot" in the center is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Funky Flowers. Added a few sequins for good measure!

Used this week's Retrosketch for the layout.

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 CTD262.  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.   

Hope you enjoy the colors and can't wait to see what you create!!

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