Ok, I'm sure you've noticed my Color Throwdown linky on the side of my blog for the last year, right? I have been jonesing to play along for that long, but have had so much going on that I just couldn't squeeze another card in my busy schedule. But, last night I did it!! I made my first Color Throwdown inspired card!! Yeay me!

This colors they have this week are:

I somehow missed the "Gray" color suggestion and made Black one of the colors! Oopsie! See, don't try to remember the colors from memory like I did - LOL :)

I chose to let the paper do the "talking" and work for me and not use a stamp. I had an image all inked up and painted in, but I couldn't cover up that wonderful sentiment and all of that wonderful glitter. So I kept it and added some Kaiser Craft Red Pearls to re-enhance the red cardstock peeping out from behind the My Mind's Eye "Lost & Found 2" paper. You can't tell from the front angle but I popped the Adore and the red cardstock up off the black cardstock, to give it depth and dimension.

I love a good challenge and using a color challenge is my favorite kind of challenge, so I hope that I can somehow squeeze in the time and join in with Color Throwdown! I hope you join in with me and go check them out using the linky I have on the side of my blog. I hope to see you there, too :)
