{CTD250} Celebrating The Color Throwdown!

 
Surprise!   
Just when you thought I had given up stamping and blogging for good,
I bring you a special creation for the 5 year celebration of
 
It was such a sweet surprise to be invited to help celebrate 5 years of these wonderful color challenges.  Please visit The Color Throwdown blog for a list of all participating alumni and guest designers, and for a list of all the PRIZES they are giving away too.   All you have to do is participate in the color challenge for a chance to WIN! 
 
 
 
My card is a 5-1/4" square using Crumb Cake cardstock as the base.  I pulled out a sheet of Bermuda Bay, So Saffron and Melon Mambo and went on a search through my stash of designer papers to find something that would inspire me.  
 
 
 It just so happens that my sweet daughter in law Jami is celebrating her birthday this week and since these are her favorite colors, this card was created with her in mind. 
 
 
 
 
I've missed sharing my creations with you and it feels so good to be back.  I'm grateful to Broni Holcomb and the CTD Team for giving me the nudge I needed.  
 
My favorite project this past year was creating a scrapbook for my precious granddaughter's first year of life.   What a blessing she is to us and you can imagine how much fun I had taking photos and creating those adorable baby girl layouts.  ♥   I'll have to post a few photos so you can see what a cutie she is.   She's growing up so fast and just celebrated her 2nd birthday last Saturday. 
 
Thank you all for stopping by today!  I encourage you to join in the The Color Throwdown celebration!  You'll be glad you did!  I sure was.  :)
 
Happy Smiles,
