Happy Wednesday, everyone!   I have a card to share today along with the other girls from The Color Throwdown  using this week's color trio!  Carole chose the colors this week!  Love this wonderful trio!  We would love to see what you create!


For my card I am using Verve's Just for You stamp set.  This set is one of "For the Boys" sets that are on sale now at Verve.  I am using the sketch from Mojo Monday194.     I used a few different patterns from My Mind's Eye designer paper.  I tried to pick some manly patterns to create a more of a guy card with these colors.  I kept the details fairly simple in keeping with guy card.  I stitched around the cut background strips and added some gingham half circles to create the scalloped edge.  I layered a lacey edge circle spellbinders.  I softly sponged Ranger straw ink inside the circle.  I finished with a dyed seam binding bow and a few gold pearls.  While there is a big bow, I hope it still works for a man card.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please check out The Color Throwdown designers to see what they created with these colors!
