Color Throwdown #250!

Oh my poor little neglected blog! .....What can I say other than, "It's summer."? Wow. Busy, busy. It's a full-time job entertaining The Piglets. I try to keep it balanced so that we have "down days" at home, but I'm not all that crafty or bloggy on our down days as I need to recover, too!

I have squeezed in a couple of challenges tonight and want to share one now. I hope to get to the other tomorrow.

Color Throwdown is celebrating it's FIVE YEAR Blogiversary with some beautiful colors and a list of prizes! What fun! The colors are so light and summery.

I decided to do a little eclectic/country mix with the chicken wire embossing (Cuttlebug) on Kraft and the geometric washi tapes. Softened it up with the rose stamps and dies (Rosie Posie, PTI) and loved how it turned out. The sentiment is from a Skipping Stones Design stamp set I have hanging around. (It's had a longer shelf life than some of my "impulse buys" usually do, but the pretty little script sentiments work so well on many projects.) I die cut the leaves using my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (CTMH).
This one was fun to make and throw all the elements together. They reside quite peacefully together, even though it's a mix I don't usually create. =)
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
