Color Throwdown

We've decided to take the day off of school today. It's really because I just needed some time to think after the morning I had. My poor neighbor called me at 6 this morning, because her daughter (they live together) had fallen. I headed over there, and ended up calling 911 within minutes. Let's just say I was not cut out to be a nurse. My poor neighbor had broken all of her front teeth because she fell with one of her dizzy spells. With my kids and home asleep, there was nothing more I could do but wait for the EMT's. So needless to say, I just needed to take my mind off of stuff. What better way to do than to combine a couple of challenges?!

This card uses the sketch over at Splitcoaststampers and the color combo from the Color Throwdown. The colors are: Soft Sky, Tangerine Tango, Basic Black, & Taken with Teal. Isn't it a great combo? I used my Bitty Botanicals set from Clear Dollar Stamps, and the sentiment is from a set called Card Categories, which is CDS as well.
CDS Stamps: Bitty Botanicals, Card Categories
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Tangerine Tango, Taken with Teal
Paper: Basic Black, vanilla, Taken with Teal, Soft Sky dp, Tangerine Tango
Accessories: sponges, mini black brads (CDS), Circle Nestabilities, Forest Branches & Victoria embossing folders

Thanks for stopping by today. I have a card for today's Color Dare as well, but I may just post tomorrow ;)
