It’s my second week to guest design with the Color Throwdown Team.  This is so much fun!!  Here is my card for the Color Throwdown Challenge #259.

The leaves have been stamped and cut out with a coordinating die.  A chipboard leaf was also cut to adhere to the paper leaf; so the leaves are super sturdy.  And again this week a Copic marker was used to color the cream colored pearl to a yummy chocolate.

Loved these colors so much that I just had to stamp some autumn flowers, too!

Hope that you can find some time to play along.  And remember you don’t have to use the exact colors.  Just use what you have that are close to the challenge colors.  For some fabulous inspiration, you’ll want to see what all of the Throwdown Designers have created:
