Color Throwdown #310

Good Morning!! Welcome to this week's Color Throwdown. Wanda picked the colors this week and I went a little retro  :)

 Those flowers are fabulous... I think she made them???

Here's my card....

 Playing with some stamps and dies from the recent Verve release!! AND I am a coffee fanatic... so this Coffee set was perfect!! Surprised I didn't find a way to sneak in the new Coffee die.... honestly I pondered on it!! Do you know how many times I get in the elevator with folks who work in our building... and I yawn...or someone else does.... immediate response... "time for a cup of coffee"

Our Guest Designer this month... the wonderful Lise Henke from My Little Creative Escape!!

And the featured Stamper this week is Joanne... you can find her blog here!

If you upload to a public gallery, please use the key words CTD310.  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.

I played in the Verve Diva Dare... Terrific Trios and used the Viva La Verve week 1 sketch (hoping the Verve police won't throw me out- when I was all done I realized- a little late- there was supposed to be a bow)

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

Speaking of coffee...haven't had my cup yet and it's almost noon! :-( Slept too late thanks to an emergency at work last night that had me coming home later. Love your sweet little flags with the dangling threads!
