Ok. I'm doing the happy dance! I was just stalking, I mean, reading up on a lot of blogs I like to look at, and discovered that I was one of the winners at The Alley Way Stamps AND at Petaloo! Happy dance! Happy dance! Woo Hoo! (Being unemployed as I am, winning paper crafting supplies is a Godsend! Thank you Lord!) So, with that said, I made a card last night that I'd like to share with you all. This I'm entering in the Color Throwdown #211:

and the inside:

Here are the challenge colors:

I wasn't able to match the colors exactly, so I used colors as close as possible. (Good thing that that is allowed!) I love this inspiration photo. It is so gorgeous!

Well, gotta go make my potato salad now. I'm going all Martha Stewart style today and have ribs slow cooking in the oven. I smell them now and my mouth keeps watering! Making my Mom's potato salad and baked beans. Yummy!

Thanks for stopping by today. The world must be ending since I'm entering this only a day after they posted the challenge. (Usually I wait until the last minute! LOL!)  I hope you get the chance to play along with the Color Throwdown. Have a great rest of the day!
