Some colors and a sketch...

I have been procrastinating on the Color Throwdown Challenge this week. The colors were Riding Hood Red, Baha Breeze and Certainly Celery (give or take - I think!) Again, as I am not an SU girl, I just estimated my color choices based on what I have. I really had to think this one through - why? who knows! LOL It just wasn't coming together in my head.

Also, this card is for the Creative Inspirations Challenge this week, who less specifically asked for green, red and blue!

Well, when I saw the sketch for this weeks Our Creative Corner challenge, I got and idea for that sketch right away and said "Hey - I can do that with the CTD color scheme!" I know - not a brilliant thought, but I figure I would share it anyway. Of course after going over to OCC to get the link, I realize my little dew drops should be at the top of the blue, but...I probably would have moved them anyway.





The stamps are AmyR from All That Scraps -and I would LOVE to thank her for including the Happy Father's Day sentiment in the Boutique Sentiment set! It's one of those that we obviously don't use very often, but it's nice to look down and see it there! I cuttlebugged the blue with my distressed stripes embossing folder and the ovals were cut out with my Nestibilites. My three dew drops in the corner and called it done. Obviously we don't want it too frilly for Dad.


And don't forget about my BLOG CANDY post here!! There is more than one way to win and who knows - You could be the winner!

Vicki, this is lovely! What a great way to use these colors, especially since it is a challenge for most of us to do masculine cards! TFS! And TFP (thanks for playing!)!
