Color Throwdown #283-- Because!

Happy Hump Day!! I'm starting it off with this fantastic color combo brought to us by Ms. Wanda!

Had fun playing with some Verve!

I inked the dots from Bountiful Background using SU Certainly Celery and Tangerine Tango and stamped on the horizontal for the background. Added some "debossed" banners using Verve's Banner Bundle dies. The sentiment is stamped on Verve's Curvy Bookplate die using a flower from Surely Goodness and sentiment from Take Note.

Played in this month's Verve Diva Dare... polka dots and used the March week 1 sketch... did a mirror image.

I'm short on time so... will do the link ups tomorrow!! Have a great Wednesday. I babysat today... a 2 and 4 year old... remembering that you are willing do ANYTHING {well, not quite anything but, pretty dang close!} to entertain  AND how those kiddos can wear you out :)
