Mama said! Color Throwdown147, MOJO, and MORE!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!   It is time for another fun set of colors.  I have a card to share today along with the other girls from The Color Throwdown  using this week's colors!   Kristen is the challenge host this week.  We would love to see what you create!

For my card I am using Verve's Feeling Groovy stamp set.   I used Verve's Vintage Oval die and Flutterby die.   I am using the sketch from Mojo Monday196.   I used some Recollections Elegance designer paper.  I decided to play with the toile piece in the pack.  I added some stitching, lace, seam binding bow, and sentiment area. I tried to stay with a vintage theme.  I finished with a die cut flutterby butterfly with black gems, ink distressing, and sparkle.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please check out The Color Throwdown designers to see what they created with these colors!
