Color Throwdown Week #2

Hi All,

How are all of you today? Here things are bright and sunny  - and so that calls for a walk in the park with the kids! But first, a little card that I made for the second Color Throwdown (I just love saying "throwdown" - its so much fun to say!). The wonderful ladies at Color Throwdown have come up with a great set of new colors for this week's challenge. The colors are Pumpkin Pie, Cool Carribean and Barely Banana. 
This was such a nice combination and I was trying to think of what to do and this is what I came up with. I made panels from the light yellow paper (why, I don't know :) and then adhered the cat image on top. The stamped sentiments are from Clear Stamps and the image was embossed in white onto the orange paper. To contrast the colors a little I xacto knifed the tail so that some of it would show up on the blue.  I added a little white prima flower with a little button brad on the cat and a few brads on the corner for color. I didn't have any ribbons in those colors, so I just went with a simple white ribbon simple ribbon. 

I really enjoy these challenges because they make use colors that I might now have thought about putting together - and I love seeing what all the amazing crafters have been up to. Thanks so much ladies for organizing this! Can't wait till next week!

I am off to organize our park outing - hope all of you are having a sunny day!

Ciao for now,
Sankari :)

Such a sweet and adorable card! I love the kitty and all those light yellow panels (they inspired me to do something similar and use the tabbed panels to hide secret messages...).
Have a happy stamping evening!

Oh, I really like this! Your design really allows the colors to flow together. Those circles down the side are just great too! And the three stripes of ribbon. Awesome card.
