Color Throwdown 337

It seems to be April showers around here, which is good because without some of the snow that other parts of the country had this winter, it was pretty dry here. The only downside is it is too cool and rainy to do much outside. I tend to get a little stir crazy when it's like that. It's also a little disappointing because my husband decided to buy me a new bike and I've only had one chance to ride it so far. I'll be looking for brighter days to come soon!

Since I was thinking about bikes, I decided to make a card for Color Throwdown with a new stamp set I got from The Stamps of Life stamp club. This is the first time I used these and I'd have to say that they are a very nice quality stamp and I'm looking forward to using this set again. The sentiment is great for those now-and-then notes of encouragement that are nice to send.

I threw together this card with some scraps of Close To My Heart papers that I had from other projects. The sketch was one from the Annual Inspirations Idea Book. The idea book is such a great way to find ideas for cards. Love it! The Junebug Puffie butterflies added a little sparkle to the project.

This was such a fun challenge to join this week. Love the colors and always love kraft paper. I especially enjoy seeing all the wonderful cards everyone makes. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!

Such a sweet card Connie. Love the bicycle image in the middle framed with the tiny flowers. The butterflies are so sweet. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown this week.
